What is WICstrong?
WICstrong is a program that provides outreach and marketing support to agencies that participate.
The WICstrong brand promotes the positive image of strong, happy, healthy families that benefit from the nutritional education and assistance through agencies like yours. The WICstrong campaign includes all of the marketing and outreach materials that agencies need to effectively communicate their message to participants and prospects: from an easy to understand and navigate website to interesting social media posts and graphics to TV commercials and print materials.
WICstrong was developed in cooperation with the NYS Department of Health and the USDA.
1. Provide a clear and easy to understand voice that speaks to your audience in a meaningful and relevant way.
2. Communicate the eligibility requirements and that many families qualify for WIC and don’t even know it.
