Food Benefits and Nutrition

Nutrition is a big deal at WIC! We want you and your kids to be healthy and strong, so we offer resources and benefits that help you get nutritious food and learn what to do with it!


Food benefits: Shopping with eWIC

Baby with WIC foodWhen you sign up for WIC, you will receive electronic monthly benefits that can be redeemed for specific nutritious food items at the grocery store. With eWIC, using WIC benefits to buy food has never been easier. WIC doesn't use paper vouchers like before. Instead, your benefits are loaded onto a card that works like a debit card. See the WIC Food List for examples of food items that may be included in your benefits package.

When you shop at the store, use the free WICShopper app on your phone to check your food benefit balance and which foods you can buy.
