The Delaware WIC (Women, Infants and Children) program is handled by the Health & Social Services. This state agency can help you with questions or issues with WIC including how to apply, what is required to be eligible for Delaware WIC benefits or if you need to schedule an appointment. If you will be meeting with the Delaware Health & Social Services, we suggest you verify what documents you should bring with you to make sure they have all the information they need to help determine your eligibility. This page provides the Delaware WIC office number and office hours.
The Delaware WIC program aims to assist low-income and nutritionally at risk women who are pregnant, women who are currently breastfeeding (up to infant's 1st birthday), nonbreastfeeding postpartum women (up to 6 months after the birth of an infant or after pregnancy ends), infants (up to 1st birthday) and children up to their fifth birthday. Benefits that are provided to participants through the Delaware WIC program includes supplemental nutritious foods, nutrition education, counseling at WIC clinics, screening and referrals for other health reasons, welfare and social services.
If you are planning to move out of state, Delaware WIC participants can still receive their benefits until the certification period expires as long as there is proof that they received WIC benefits in Delaware. Before you move, it is recommended that you contact the local WIC office. In most cases, the state agency will provide you with a special card that proves you participated in the Delaware WIC Program. When you have moved, the next step would be to call the WIC office in the state you moved to and schedule an appointment. Make sure to bring the special card to your appointment to show proof you received benefits from the Delaware WIC program.
