Nutrifit Summer Camp:  The Nutrifit Summer Camp is a one week camp provided to WIC Children and their siblings aged 4-11 years old that focuses on Nutrition Education, Healthy Snack Building and Physical Activity through age appropriate classes. 

This division includes the Women, Infants and Children’s (WIC) Supplemental Food Program, special diet counseling given to Maternity Clinic patients and to diabetics, as well as nutrition information, classes and nutrition seminars provided to the community and schools upon request.

Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program:

A nutrition program designed to detect nutritionally "at risk" women, infants and children and assistance to prevent low-birth weight and premature infants, iron deficiency anemia, failure to thrive, obesity, etc. WIC serves pregnant, breastfeeding (for one year), and postpartum (for six months) women, as well as infants and children up to five years of age. WIC promotes breastfeeding and provides special nutrition classes, individual counseling, frequent follow up to high risk clients, health assessment, health care and social service referrals, and immunizations. 3,000 children are immunized by the WIC program each month. Foods provided by the WIC Program are based on their nutritious protein, vitamin, calcium, iron and low sugar content. Nutrition and health education is also provided as well as limited nutritional health screening.

Among the 8 WIC clinics, an average of 21,000 participants are seen per month. About 20,000 food packages with an average value of $47.00 are distributed per month, totalling more than $940,000 worth of food vouchers.
