Davidson County WIC Program Launches New Mobile WIC Clinic

3/17/2014

WHO:  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!

WHAT:  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.

WHEN/WHERE:  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 for more information.

WHY:  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.
