USDA Announces Support for Smarter Lunchrooms

March 25, 2015
  WASHINGTON, March 12, 2014 – Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today announced $5.5 million in new grants to support schools as they continue to provide school lunches and breakfasts that give children the nutrition they need to learn and grow.


Food Benefits

WIC checks provide healthy foods from a WIC authorized store for eligible participants. Your supplemental food package is determined at the WIC office and printed on the checks, which may be redeemed at any authorized WIC store in Pennsylvania

Nutrition Services

Nutrition services are the core of WIC! WIC understands that the first years of life are the formative years for shaping healthy eating attitudes and habits.

Health Screenings+Referrals

WIC provides free health screenings to determine nutritional risk(s) and referrals to other health, social service, or community agencies that could help your family.

Breastfeeding Support

The health benefits of breastfeeding are related to how long a mother breastfeeds her baby. Although any amount of breastfeeding is better than none at all, long term breastfeeding reaps long term rewards.
