Description

This map shows the names, locations, and types of facilities for vendors across NYS where WIC provisions are available. The WIC Vendor Listing is compiled and published to provide WIC Participants with readily identifiable locations they can use to cash their WIC Benefits. WIC improves the health of pregnant women, new mothers and their infants and children. The foods provided through WIC are a good source of nutrients often missing from the diets of women and young children. WIC participants have longer, healthier pregnancies and fewer premature births.
