Breastfeeding support and so much more.
The Oak Orchard Health WIC Program provides eligible families with breastfeeding support, nutrition counseling, health education, health care referrals, referrals to other services, and nutritious foods. WIC is a federally funded supplemental nutrition program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC).
Our nutrition staff consists of Registered Dietitians and Certified Nutritionists. Breastfeeding support and counseling is provided by Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC), Certified Lactation Counselors (CLC), and our WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselors. All our staff is committed to providing participant-centered care to ensure each family’s needs and concerns are being met.
- Nutrition education and counseling to eligible families in Genesee, Orleans, and Western Monroe Counties
- Breastfeeding promotion and support provided by trained breastfeeding staff, available 24 hours a day. Free breast pumps available when needed.
- Participants receive food benefits on an eWIC card for healthy foods such as milk, cheese, eggs, whole grain bread/pasta/tortillas, cereal, peanut butter, dried or canned beans/peas, baby foods, fruits, vegetables, and more. WIC also provides infant formula for those babies who are not breastfed.
- During the summer, families enrolled in WIC are eligible to receive Farmer’s Market Checks. These checks may be used to purchase locally grown produce at participating farmers’ markets.
- Referrals to other health and community resources.
