I will be hosting a virtual town hall on October 12, 2020 from 3PM to 4PM with Councilmember Sylvia Arenas, the California Department of Public Health, and Santa Clara County and Alameda County Departments of Public Health to provide information about the WIC program, including on eligibility and how to apply. COVID-19 has caused much challenges and uncertainty regarding our health, finance, safety, and food security. California offers special assistance for low-income women with children, also known as the Women, Infants, and Children Program or the WIC Program, to meet their nutritional needs. Please join us to learn more about the WIC program.

The WIC program serves to safeguard the health of low-income pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding women, infants, and children up to the age of 5 who are at nutritional risk by providing assistance for nutritious food, information on healthy eating, breastfeeding promotion and support, and referrals to health care and other community programs at no cost. Do not miss out on this assistance that will keep you and your children healthy. We hope to see you there!
