Women, Infants and Children (WIC)

The Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program is funded by a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture to provide supplemental foods, health care referrals, and nutrition education for low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, and to infants and children up to age five who are found to be at nutritional risk.

Yale-New Haven Hospital is the lead agency for the New Haven WIC Program, which is the largest in the State, serving 10,000 women and their children. There is a WIC office on each of the two YNHH campuses. For more information please call the Howard Avenue office on the York Street campus at (203) 688-5150 or the Chapel Street office on the Saint Raphael campus at (203) 789-3563.
