Fulton WIC Program

The WIC Office, also called a WIC Clinic, accepts and processes applications for WIC benefits. They also administer the program, ensuring that eligible women, infants, and children receive the nutritional benefits, educational resources, and health care assistance offered under the program. The WIC Office coordinates with the Mississippi Department of Public Health to decrease food insecurity in Fulton.

Applying for WIC in Fulton

WIC eligibility is restricted to pregnant or postpartum women, infants, and young children. Applicants must also meet income restrictions to qualify for benefits, which are set at the Mississippi state government level. WIC Offices accept applications for benefits and determine whether applicants meet the qualifications. In general, eligible women and children who receive SNAP, TANF, Medicaid, or other public assistance meet the income requirements for WIC benefits. The WIC Office determines whether applicants are at "nutrition risk" by conducting an assessment and administers WIC benefits for program recipients.

WIC Food Benefits

Eligible WIC recipients receive several types of food benefits. The program's nutritional assistance includes Food Packages designed to meet the nutritional needs of women and children in the recipient family, including pregnant and breastfeeding women. Itawamba County WIC recipients typically receive their benefits on an eWIC or EBT card. Recipients can also participate in the WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program, which provides WIC recipients with coupons to use at farmers markets. Contact the WIC Office for questions about food benefits or to report a problem receiving food benefits.

WIC Education and Health Care Benefits

In addition to food benefits, WIC Offices also provide nutritional education benefits, such as consultations with nutritionists and health care professionals on dietary needs. The WIC Office also refers recipients to Itawamba County health care providers and offers meet-up groups for mothers and children.
