Approved Food Guide
Attention: COVID-19 Announcement
Temporary Food Changes in Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
We know it has been challenging to find some WIC foods. In response, WIC has temporarily expanded our food list to add options for some hard-to-find items including bread, eggs and cheese. Click the links below to see what has been added. Please check at customer service if you are unable to find WIC formula on the shelves.
In the store and not sure if it is newly WIC-approved? Use the WIC Shopper App to scan the bar code, then compare to YOUR family food benefit list to double check.
Please continue to be patient with your grocers as they are working hard to stock their shelves. You can also look for different options you have within each food group in the food guide found below.
