Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children
NYS Department of Health (NYSDOH)
1. How it Works
WIC provides free healthy food and services to low-income women and their children, including nutrition counseling, breastfeeding support, health education, and referrals to other programs and services.
WIC staff will talk to you and determine which food packages are right for you and your children.
If your child has special dietary needs, your health care provider may provide a completed Medical Documentation Form for you to bring.
A qualified WIC staff member will complete a short assessment during your appointment for all family members applying for WIC. This screening includes a finger stick blood test, height and weight, and a discussion of your health and nutrition concerns.
Each person applying for WIC must be present at the local agency at the time of certification.
