WIC is the supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children — a federally-funded program that provides free healthy foods, nutrition education, breastfeeding support, and referrals.

WIC serves women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, and/or up to 6 months postpartum, infants, and children up to 5 years of age.

Individuals who receive Health First Colorado (Medicaid) are automatically eligible for WIC and even those who are over income for Health First Colorado qualify; one may be on WIC and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) at the same time. Participants must reside in Colorado and U.S. citizenship is not required.
