WIC

The Sullivan County WIC Program has fully transitioned to eWIC!!

WIC participants will purchase WIC foods using an Electronic Benefits Transfer card called eWIC. This will make shopping for WIC foods easier for WIC families.

eWIC Card

What is an eWIC card?

An eWIC card is like a debit card. You can use your eWIC card to buy WIC-approved foods at WIC stores. Your local agency will add your family’s benefits to your eWIC account.

The WIC program is a federally funded nutrition education and supplemental food program.  To qualify, you must be a New York State resident, be at nutritional or health risk, be income eligible and either pregnant, breastfeeding, or have had an infant within the last 6 months.  Infants and children up to age five are also eligible. The eWIC Card is used to obtain free nutritious foods which include milk, yogurt, pasta, 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 breastfeeding peer counselors 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, nutrition and health education/support from qualified nutritionists, 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 Gladys Olmsted Building, 50 Community Lane. Companion WIC clinics are held in Monticello and Wurtsboro. Please call the Liberty office for an appointment at any of these sites.

We encourage anyone who thinks they may be eligible to apply.  Many working families are eligible.  To apply or find out if you or someone you know may qualify, please call WIC at Sullivan County Public Health Services: 845-292-5910 and press #5 for the WIC program.
