WIC is a Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children. It is federally funded by the United States Department of Agriculture. The American Red Cross WIC Program is unique to San Diego . The San Diego/Imperial Counties Chapter is currently the only American Red Cross chapter in the country that administers the WIC Program. This WIC/Red Cross partnership developed when the WIC Program was first initiated in the state of California in 1974. Red Cross Nursing personnel were working with pregnant, inner city teens and saw that administration of the WIC Program seemed a perfect way to assist these young mothers. The San Diego/Imperial Counties Chapter of the American Red Cross proudly brings a 100 year history of health promotion and humanitarian service to our administration of the WIC Program.
