Davidson County WIC Program Launches New Mobile WIC Clinic
March 17, 2014
The Metro Public Health Department and the WIC Program have teamed up with churches, community centers, housing agencies, and public service organizations throughout Davidson County to offer WIC voucher pick-up classes near you!
The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) provides supplemental foods, health care referrals, and nutrition education to pregnant, breastfeeding, and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, and to infants and children up to age five. To qualify for the Davidson County WIC Program, families must live in Davidson County and meet low-income guidelines.
Families who qualify for WIC benefits may attend the new WIC Mobile Clinic to pick-up vouchers, instead of going to their WIC clinic location. WIC Mobile pick-up sites are designed to be closer and more convenient for families, often within walking distance of the participants’ homes.
The WIC Mobile Clinic travels to 17 different community locations, visiting each site one day per month. Check out the weekly schedule
and classroom site map

The Davidson County WIC Program is committed to preventing and improving nutrition-related health problems in at-risk populations. The WIC Mobile Program aims to reduce the barriers of time, money, and transportation to help our residents receive the health services they need.
