WIC is a nutrition program for thousands of Maine families, helping Maine kids to grow up strong and healthy. WIC food benefits are available based on income guidelines and up-to-date nutrition research. SKCDC partners with WIC to provide onsite WIC services at our Plummer Street location in Gardiner.
