Temporary office hours and closures

Women, Infants, & Children (WIC) Program 

The Florida Department of Health in Palm Beach County WIC program continues to welcome families.  In order to limit exposure and help prevent the spread of COVID-19, some Palm Beach County WIC clients may now receive services over the phone without having to come to one of the WIC office locations.

WIC is a federally funded nutrition program for Women, Infants, and Children who meet income and nutrition risk requirements. WIC provides participants who qualify for the program with the following at no cost: healthy foods, nutrition education and counseling, breastfeeding support, and referrals for health care and community services.

Please call 561-357-6007 to speak to a WIC representative for more information.
