Low-income nutrition program seeks new clients

The San Juan County Women, Infant and Children’s Nutrition Program has free food vouchers available for low-income pregnant women and children under five years old.

In addition to healthy foods, including fresh fruits and vegetables, the program provides parents and their kids with nutrition and feeding ideas, health assessments, breastfeeding support and connections to other needed health services.

The nutrition program serves working families living on a tight budget and unemployed families.  A family of two or a pregnant single woman can qualify with an income under $2,333 per month; a family of four can have income up to $3,554 per month.

To learn more, or enroll, call 378-4474 for an appointment or visit San Juan County Health & Community Services at 145 Rhone Street in Friday Harbor.  Offices are also located on Orcas and Lopez; call 378-4474 to schedule an appointment.
