Food and nutrition programs provide supplemental foods to certain groups of people who meet program eligibility requirements. Give clients information about the programs for which they may be eligible.

Following is a list of sections that contain information on some food or nutrition programs. Refer to these sections for more information:


State Food Programs.


School Lunch Program.


Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program.


Commodity Supplemental Food Program.


Food Distribution Program-Indian Reservation.

County agencies determine eligibility for the state food program.

The other programs require eligibility determination by non-county agencies. Use information in these sections to refer clients to programs for which they might be eligible. Do not try to determine a client's eligibility for a particular program based on information in these sections. The non-county agency responsible for the program must make the eligibility determination.
