The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) provides supplemental foods, nutrition and health education plus health and human services referrals to income eligible pregnant, breastfeeding, postpartum women, infants and children up to 5 years of age who are at nutritional risk. Health and dietary information provided by a doctor, nurse, nutritionist, dietitian, or clinic / health care provider is used to determine nutritional risk.

The WIC Program provides food checks that can be used at local contracted grocery stores and pharmacies to buy specific WIC approved nutritious foods. While on WIC, participants learn about good nutrition, breastfeeding, choosing healthy foods and other health concerns.

In Suffolk County, SCDHS WIC clinics are co-located within health centers now operated by HRHCare, and affiliated Dolan Family Health Center. Call one of the WIC clinics on the other side for more information, and to make a WIC certification appointment.
