Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in New York City, Neighborhood WIC services are operating on modified hours until further notice. Check below for modified hours marked in red. If you have an existing appointment or need assistance, please contact the sites directly during the listed business hours. We will try our best to assist you in the best way we can. We are continuing to monitor the situation closely so please check back in on this page for regular updates. 

In April 2019, PHS has transitioned to a new electronic system called NYWIC, which gives WIC participants a new way to shop for WIC foods using an eWIC card. The WIC2Go app is also available to participants to track appointments and food benefits.

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.

To make a WIC appointments at any of our nine centers in Queens, Brooklyn, and the Bronx, please check below for contact and site information.
