WIC

The SBH Health System WIC Program is a federal and state-funded nutrition education and supplemental food program. The WIC Program provides nutrition, health, fitness, and breastfeeding information as well as monthly nutritional tailored food packages for eligible participants.

Pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum women and children up to age 5 who meet the medical, nutritional, residential and income requirements are eligible. You will need to bring the following items for your first appointment:

  1. Your child or children and proof of address (rent receipt, utility bill, etc.)
  2. Proof of income (pay stub, unemployment benefits, etc. ) for everyone in your household
  3. Proof of identity (birth certificates and immunization records for each person applying for benefits)
  4. A completed WIC medical referral form available at your primary doctors office, our WIC office, and on the St. Barnabas Health System Website

Legal Residency, United States Citizenship, or Social Security are not required. You are eligible even if you or a member of your household are employed, receive SNAP, TANF, Medicaid, or have an F-1 foreign student visa.
