WIC helps families.

WIC supports moms, moms-to-be, and their families with:

  • healthy food
  • nutrition advice
  • breastfeeding support
  • referrals to other services
You may be eligible for WIC.

You may be eligible if you:

  • live in New York
  • are pregnant or have a child under age 5
  • meet income guidelines

Dads, grandparents, and other caregivers can apply for children under 5 in their care.

WIC Help NY can help you.

Our Specialists help families get connected with WIC. We:

  • tell you if you may be eligible
  • help you with documents you need
  • set up your first appointment at a WIC Clinic

It’s free and confidential. Find your local WIC Help Specialist
