North Country Family Health Center WIC Program
WIC is a nutrition program that improves the health of pregnant women, new mothers, infants and children. WIC gives families nutritious food, nutrition advice, tips for staying healthy, recipes, and resources for growing families.
North Country Family Health Center operates the WIC program in Jefferson and Lewis Counties. Our staff, which includes nutritionists and nurse educators, looks at the nutrition needs of participants and writes “food prescriptions” in the form of vouchers or checks for specific food items. These WIC checks are used at participating local grocery stores
