WIC Messaging is a system that allows WIC participants to request communication through text messages instead of by phone. Participants may still receive a phone call, for example, if we need your input on a short survey or if your appointment will be completed by phone, even if you choose to be a part of WIC messaging.
WIC sends appointment reminders, missed appointment notifications, reminders to use your WIC benefits, invitations to events, and occasionally messages about special announcements like the Farmers Market program,
You will receive a text message that confirms that you have been enrolled.
If you have a new phone number, text your name, date of birth, and WIC ID # to 91997 to update your record. This text will add your new phone number to the WIC messaging system.
