The WIC Mission
The Massachusetts Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Nutrition Program is the Commonwealth’s premier community-based nutrition program. Its goal is to improve the health status of families by providing nutrition and health education, nutritious foods and resources to other health and human service programs.
WIC achieves this by collaborating with community, health care, retail food store, state, and federal partners. Through WIC’s coordinated and accessible services, our vision is to give families life-long nutrition and health benefits.
Caring, Responsive, Respectful, Supportive
