Society for the Protection and Care of Children (SPCC) Finger Lakes WIC Program
SPCC’s Finger Lakes WIC program (Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children) serves over 5,000 women, infants and children throughout Ontario, Wayne, Yates, Seneca and Eastern Monroe counties. WIC provides nutritious foods, nutrition education, breastfeeding support and referrals to health and other social services at no charge. WIC serves low-income pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, and infants and children up to age 5.
Participants receive vouchers for healthy foods such as milk, cheese, eggs, whole grain breads and cereals, peanut butter, dried beans/peas, baby foods, fruits, vegetables and more. WIC also provides infant formula for those babies who are not breastfed. During the summer, families enrolled in WIC are eligible to receive $24 worth of Farmer’s Market Checks. These checks may be used to purchase locally grown produce at participating farmer’s markets.
SPCC Finger Lakes WIC maintains four permanent offices: Canandaigua, Newark, Penn Yan, and Waterloo. In addition to the permanent offices, WIC clinics are held in Sodus, Wolcott, Geneva, Fairport, and Webster. Evening and early morning appointments are available.
