Can My Family Enroll in WIC? 

  • WIC is for all types of Virginia families - families with married or single parents and those who are working or not working.
  • If you are a father, mother, foster parent, or other legal guardian of a child under 5 years of age, you can apply for your child.
  • If you are a woman who is pregnant, breastfeeding, or has a baby up to 6 months old, you can apply for yourself.
  • WIC has higher income guidelines than SNAP (EBT, Food Stamps) or Medicaid, so even if you don't qualify for SNAP or Medicaid, you still may qualify for WIC.
