WIC Returns to Regular Approved Food List on June 1

In 2020, WIC expanded the list of approved foods to offer a greater selection of options for families. This was in response to the short supply of food on many grocery store shelves during the pandemic.

The COVID-19 expanded list of approved foods will no longer be available after June 1, 2021.

Use the California WIC App or the WIC Authorized Food List Shopping Guide to make sure you purchase the right foods on your food balance.

We strongly encourage you to use the WIC Food Scan feature in the California WIC App when shopping for your WIC foods.
