Our Mission

Our mission is to lead California communities to nourish, educate, support,
and empower families in building a healthy future.

Urgent Action

California WIC Association Believes That Black Lives Matter. Read about our reinforced commitment to dismantling systemic racism, challenging individual and organizational implicit bias, and building bridges to health equity by visiting our work in progress (see button below).

COVID-19 Resources

State WIC programs and USDA are working feverishly to make adjustments to enable families to continue to receive WIC benefits, even more critical due to the impact of COVID-19. Local agencies are working with their local organization’s response to COVID-19 and also being mindful of staff wellness.

WIC in the Future

Since 1974, WIC services have improved health and social outcomes among America’s diverse families. Like any successful business or program, WIC needs updating to continue to engage today’s families.

Our Advocacy Work

CWA engages with partners on cross-sector public policy issues
on behalf of the WIC program and families.

"California renters facing COVID-19 financial hardship would be protected from eviction until July a legislative proposal that Gov. Gavin Newsom and Democrats are expected to formally announce Monday...The current law protects tenants as long as they’re paying a total 25% of their rent starting in September 2020, and can prove pandemic-related adversity like job or salary loss. The deal was part of a months-long and contentious negotiations process between landlord groups and renter representatives."
