OK (KSWO)- The Chickasaw Nation Women, Infants and Children Supplemental Nutrition Program (WIC) extends its specialized nutrition education services and expanded food package to families who need encouragement and support in feeding their children from the prenatal period up to age five. 

The program works with individuals to promote breastfeeding, improve their diet, and get immunizations and health care if needed.

Services are available to those who meet the following guidelines: 

  • Are currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have had a baby in the past six months or have a child up to five years of age
  • Meet WIC income guidelines
  • Have a nutritional screening at the WIC office to determine if they are at nutritional risk

Homeless persons will be served immediately upon request. This program is open to everyone, not just enrolled members of the tribe. There are WIC offices located in Ada, Ardmore, Purcell, Duncan, and Sulphur.

For more information about the WIC program or to find an office near you, call 1-855-559-0985.
