is short for "The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants,
and Children," and provides supplemental food and counseling for low-income

improve. Fairly recent innovations like the EBT card – a kind of debit card used
exclusively for the purchase of WIC items – have already made nutritional
support easier and more effective.
