  • Morisianna WIC Program:

Our WIC Program has been actively reaching out to new participants (pregnant and breastfeeding women, infants and children less than 5 years old) to let them know that the Morrisania WIC Program can certify all eligible participants – remotely! They can stay in the safety and comfort of their own homes and receive WIC benefits.  We are also providing our Baby Café – Virtual Edition every Thursday – 11 AM  English and 1 PM Spanish. 

We have a Breastfeeding Chat Room for our Morrisania pregnant and breastfeeding families as well. Here is the direct link to our WIC Strong Morrisania page.  We even have a Covid-19 – TeleWIC page!
