Program FAQ

 WIC can offer (depending on personal nutrition needs) formula, fruits, vegetables, milk, whole grains, baby food, 100% juice, cereal, and more!

 

Besides offering supplemental nutritious foods, WIC offers nutrition counseling, breastfeeding support, peer counseling, and referrals to health and other services.

No! Recently, the new eWIC system rolled out in New York. Instead of the checks that were always a hassle, WIC benefits are now on an EBT card (electronics benefit card). This should make for a better shopping experience!
