eWIC provides an electronic process for WIC customers to purchase approved items at authorized vendor locations.

Any food benefits not used during one shopping trip will be available to use until the end of the benefit period
One card per household with all of your family's food benefits
Select a four-digit PIN number for the card

Your WIC nutritionist will help select an appropriate food package at your WIC appointment
