We help over 35,000 eligible pregnant and nursing women and children up to age five years of age to enroll in the New York State WIC (Women Infants and Children) Program each year. Through our WIC program, we provide nutrition education sessions led by WIC nutritionists on healthy eating and physical activity, breastfeeding support, and eWIC cards to purchase nutritious foods. We also make referrals to other services including SNAP and health insurance (co-located at many of our sites), medical and dental providers, child care, and other needed services.
