WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) is a program that serves pregnant, postpartum, breastfeeding women, infants, and children under the age of 5 who have health or nutrition risks.
The Oregon WIC program is committed to creating systems of health equity for all individuals, families, and communities. We strive to maintain a welcoming and trauma-informed work environment that reflects and supports the racial and ethnic diversity of our participants, local agencies, partners, and communities.

The Oregon Veggie Rx programs within the Oregon Community Food Systems Network seek to curb food insecurity by providing fresh produce. In addition, Veggie Rx provides nutritional and educational resources to support healthy lifestyle changes for patients experiencing food insecurity and diet-related diseases.
Typically, healthcare providers prescribe produce prescriptions to patients who redeem them at Farmers Markets or for a CSA membership and occasionally to retail outlets. Patients enrolled in Veggie Rx programs report behavioral, mental, and physical health improvements, while the local economy and small farms benefit via produce sales. These programs represent partnerships between local health clinics, Coordinated Care Organizations, and the organizations that manage the programs.
