WIC Program Updates

What’s new in WIC?

As of October 15, 2013 Michigan WIC has updated their Food Guide.

Please stop by your local WIC office to pick up your new Michigan WIC food guide.

The Kent County Health Department now has Peer Counselors to provide support and encouragement for mothers in the community who are currently breast-feeding or are interested in breast-feeding.

 The Peer Counselors are available in all WIC clinics within Kent County.
