The WIC program is a nutrition education and supplemental food program for eligible women who are either pregnant, breastfeeding, or have had an infant within the last 6 months.  Infants and children up to age five who may be at nutritional or medical risk are also eligible.  WIC provides vouchers for free nutritious foods which include milk, cheese, tofu, eggs, peanut butter, beans, whole grain bread, brown rice and cereal, and fruits and vegetables.  WIC promotes breastfeeding and offers support and guidance, and offers breast pumps for eligible women. WIC has a breastfeeding peer counselor on staff available to talk with you about your questions or concerns. In addition, a  toll free National Breastfeeding Helpline sponsored by the US Department of Health and Human Services and the National Women’s Health Information Center is available.

The staff of the Sullivan County WIC Program is dedicated to improving the health and quality of life of all its participants through access to healthy foods, health and nutrition education and support, smoking cessation and support, and referrals to other agencies as appropriate.

The primary WIC site/main office is located in Liberty at Sullivan County Public Health Services, in the Shared Clinic Facility, 50 Community Lane.  Offsite WIC clinics are held throughout the county in the following towns/villages: Monticello, Wurtsboro, Woodridge, Jeffersonville, and Livingston Manor. Please call the Liberty office for an appointment at any of these sites.

WIC is a federally funded program. To qualify for WIC you must be a New York State resident, be income eligible and be pregnant, breast feeding or be the parent/guardian of a child less than five years old. We encourage anyone who think they may be eligible to apply.  Many working families are eligible.  To apply or find out if you or someone you know may be qualify, please call WIC at Sullivan County Public Health Services:   (845) 292-5910 and press #5 for the WIC program.
