WIC Program Goals

WIC Program Goals:

The Cherokee Nation first contracted to operate a WIC program in 1977. WIC is a nutrition program that provides nutrition and health education, healthy foods, and breastfeeding education support to eligible women, infants and children including:

Infants and children under five (5) years of age
Pregnant or breastfeeding women
Women who have recently been pregnant (less than 6 months since pregnancy ended)

WIC is for all kinds of families: married and single parents, working or non-working. It is open to fathers, mothers, grandparents, foster parents or legal guardians of a child under 5. Both Natives and non-Natives can apply for Cherokee Nation WIC benefits.

The WIC Program is working to achieve the Cherokee Nation goals for healthy, happy families by improving the nutritional status of tribal citizens.

To participate in Cherokee Nation WIC applicants must live in the Cherokee Nation WIC service area; have a nutritional need (WIC staff can help you determine this need during visit); are a child under 5, or a pregnant or breastfeeding woman, or woman who has recently been pregnant (less than 6 months since pregnancy ended); and have a family income less than WIC guidelines; currently receive SNAP (Food Stamps), SoonerCare, Food Distribution (FDPIR) or TANF (you are automatically income eligible).

Please provide proof of income, identification, and proof of residency. Contact any Cherokee Nation WIC Clinic to set up an appointment or call 1-800-256-0671 extension 5589. Walk-ins are always welcome.
