eWIC Cards: The New Way to WIC


Good food is essential to your health and the health of your children. Your eWIC card will make buying what you need easier than ever.

Shopping with eWIC Cards

Soon you will use an eWIC card to pick up your WIC foods at approved grocery stores. Simply swipe your eWIC card and enter your PIN, just like you would with a debit card.

Because WIC’s emphasis is on healthy eating for mothers and children, you can use your eWIC card to buy:

  • milk
  • cereal
  • yogurt
  • juice
  • eggs
  • cheese
  • peanut butter
  • beans
  • whole wheat bread
  • brown rice
  • whole wheat pasta
  • whole wheat and corn tortillas
  • fresh, frozen or canned fruits and vegetables
  • baby formula
  • baby food

Exclusively breastfeeding women will have increased quantities of WIC foods, and canned fish like tuna or salmon will be added to their food package.
