WIC is More Convenient Than Ever

The beginning of the pandemic sparked a series of changes in WIC services that have helped make the program safer and easier to access. Busy families can choose the appointment method that works best for them, connect with nutrition counselors, and quickly receive healthy foods.

If you are pregnant or have a child under age 5, please apply for WIC onlineWe will contact you to confirm your eligibility and complete your enrollment. In-person enrollments can be scheduled at a WIC office near you, and you will receive your food benefits the same day if you qualify. Enrollments can also be completed entirely by phone or video. You will receive your WIC benefits by mail within a few days if you qualify.

Attend appointments at home or at a WIC office near you

Many WIC appointments can be completed by phone, in-person, or online.

Throughout your pregnancy and your baby’s first year, you will have appointments with a WIC counselor every 1-3 months. After your baby turns 1, we will reassess their eligibility every year. If your family continues to qualify for WIC, you will have a minimum of four WIC appointments per year. Some appointments will be with a WIC counselor, and some will be classes.

Appointments with WIC counselors are by video, phone, or in-person. Class appointments are online or on Zoom. Let your WIC counselor know at your next contact if you have a preferred appointment method!

If you missed your appointment or need to reschedule, text 91997.
