WIC Eggs are Now Cage-Free Only

Starting January 1, 2022, only cage-free eggs are allowed with WIC benefits.

Health and safety amendments from Proposition 12 (2018) require all eggs sold in California to be cage-free. California WIC participants can now purchase only large, white, cage-free eggs using their WIC benefits.

Any brand of large, white, cage-free chicken eggs is allowed to be purchased with WIC benefits.

WIC benefits can not be used to purchase other egg sizes or colors, powdered or liquid eggs, or specialty eggs that are organic, pastured, vitamin-enriched, low cholesterol, or DHA-enriched.

Check your WIC App for information on all WIC-approved foods.
