Your WIC Benefits

You are 1 of the 130,000 participants who receives WIC approved foods each month through redeeming WIC vouchers or WIC electronic benefits at over 800 grocery stores and pharmacies across the state.  In addition, select pharmacy locations provide therapeutic formulas made for infants, children, and adults with specific nutrition or medical disorders.

Woman grocery shopping

WIC foods provide nutrients essential for growth and development.  These nutrients are provided by fruits and vegetables, whole grain foods, low fat milk, cheese, eggs, peanut butter and dry beans and special foods like soy beverages and tofu.  The WIC supplemental foods that are offered to you are aligned with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the American Academy of Pediatrics’ infant feeding guidance.

Your local WIC clinic can provide you with a list of approved grocery stores and pharmacies in your area.  Please refer to the WIC Approved Food Lists and WIC Food List, by Participant Type below for detailed list of WIC foods available to you.
