WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) Services
This program, funded by the New York State Department of Health, provides nutrition education, lactation counseling, checks for nutritious foods, and referrals to social service and health care agencies for expecting, nursing, and postpartum women, and infants and children to age 5. Licensed nutritionists, lactation specialists, and peer counselors provide participants with information on healthy eating, nursing assistance and support. An extensive nutrition resource library supplies participants with informational materials on a wide range of nutrition and health related topics and issues. Group nutrition classes, informative seminars, food demonstrations, and healthy lifestyle initiatives are a regular part of the program.

Yeled V’Yalda WIC has been serving the New York City WIC population since April 2004. Originally allocated a caseload of 2,500 Yeled V’Yalda WIC has had its caseload increased annually by NYS DOH, with the program currently servicing over 8,000 participants monthly.
