Can Men, Foster Parents, and Grandparents participate in WIC?
WIC welcomes all family types. WIC recognizes the important role that fathers, grandparents, step-parents, foster parents and other guardians play in caring for kids. Fathers and other caregivers of kids under 5 are encouraged to enroll and bring kids to appointments, attend nutrition classes, pick up and use WIC checks in grocery stores.
