Mid-Shore WIC serves Caroline, Dorchester, and Caroline Counties on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. 

WIC is a federal program that provides free healthy supplemental foods and breastfeeding support for pregnant women, new mothers, infants, and children under age 5. WIC also helps other kinds of families with young children (such as adoptive and foster families), single dads, or women who have experienced miscarriage or women who have placed a baby up for adoption. 

Wic’s Impact

The WIC program is one of the most successful governmental programs, with a demonstrated positive impact on the health and wellbeing of participants. Mid-Shore WIC serves nearly 3,000 people in our region each year, creating long-lasting benefits to our participating families and children.  

  • WIC reduces fetal deaths and infant mortality.

  • WIC decreases the incidence of iron deficiency anemia in children.
  • WIC improves the dietary intake of pregnant and postpartum women and improves weight gain in pregnant women.
  • Pregnant women participating in WIC receive prenatal care earlier.
  • Children enrolled in WIC are more likely to have a regular source of medical care and have more up to date immunizations.
  • WIC helps get children ready to start school: children who receive WIC benefits demonstrate improved intellectual development.
