National Breastfeeding Month Drive By Celebration

Date: Wednesday, August 25, 2021

Time: 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Location: The Big Chair (Outside) - 2101 MLK Jr. Ave SE 

Children's National Health Center will celebrate and promote breastfeeding by hosting a "drive by" celebration. Drop on by to receive breastfeeding information, goodie bags, and more in celebration of National Breastfeeding Month. Come say hi to your favorite WIC staffers while practicing social distancing. 

DC WIC has joined forces with local partners to bring you free online cooking classes!

Classes are being held virtually in light of the COVID-19 public health pandemic.  

And don't forget about the YMCA’s "Simple Cooking with Heart" virtual class series!

Here you will find 8 lessons where chefs and nutritionists coach you through various cooking skills, from knife skills to braising meats. 


Each class covers a different culinary and nutrition topic, then guides you to cook your way through 2-3 recipes. The focus is placed on decreasing salt, fat, and sugar cooking by creating bold flavors with herbs and spices.

In each class, you will find videos of the nutrition and culinary components, the recipes, skill cards for the skills learned in class, and related recipes to practice at home.
