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.

For the most recent list of foods able to be purchased using WIC benefits, visit MyFamily.WIC.ca.gov.

Can Men Participate in WIC?

Yes! Men are welcome at WIC. WIC recognizes the important role that fathers, grandfathers, stepfathers, and other guardians play in caring for kids. Fathers and other caregivers of kids under five are encouraged to enroll and bring kids to appointments, attend nutrition and health education sessions, and use their checks in grocery stores that accept WIC.

Getting the COVID-19 Vaccine During Pregnancy

Immunizations help protect you, your loved ones, and everyone around you from serious illness and even death. WIC encourages all infants, children, and adults to follow the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) vaccination recommendations to help keep all families healthy.

In addition to routine immunizations for pregnant and postpartum people, WIC recommends following the CDC’s advice for the COVID-19 vaccine before, during, and after pregnancy.

The CDC and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommend that all individuals get vaccinated for COVID-19 who are:

  • Pregnant
  • Trying to get pregnant, or may become pregnant
  • Recently postpartum
  • Breastfeeding or chestfeeding

Pregnant and recently pregnant people are at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19 and may be at risk for preterm birth. The COVID-19 vaccine can help protect you and your baby. It has been found to prevent COVID-19 infection, severe illness, and death. Growing evidence about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine shows that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh any known or potential risks of vaccination during pregnancy.

Talk to your doctor if you have questions about getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

How to Get Vaccinated:

Visit VaccinateLACounty.com and click on “How to Get Vaccinated” to find a location near you.

No appointment is needed at many locations. Vaccines are free and you don’t need insurance. You will not be asked about your immigration status.

You can also call the Vaccine Call Center at 833-540-0473. The call center is open daily from 8:00 am to 8:30 pm and can help you:

  • Find a vaccination location in your neighborhood
  • Arrange transportation to and from a vaccination site
  • Request vaccination at home if you are homebound
  • For more COVID-19 vaccine resources from the LA County Department of Public Health, download this guide: COVID_8.25.21 (lacounty.gov)

    Lost WIC Card? We can help!

    We care about your experience shopping for food with your WIC benefits. If you need to replace a lost WIC card, or your WIC card isn’t working, we are here to help! Learn how to get a WIC card replacement, report an issue with a grocery store, and learn more solutions to common problems with spending WIC benefits.

    Solutions to Commonly Reported WIC Shopping Issues

    My WIC card is not swiping at checkout

    WIC card

    If your WIC card did not work at the grocery store, there are a few reasons why this could happen. Before you use your WIC card the first time, set up your PIN by calling 1-844-469-3264. Make sure it’s something you can remember. You’ll use this PIN every time you use your WIC card.

    When checking out at the store, if a PIN is entered incorrectly three times, the card will lock. It will automatically unlock at midnight. If forgot your PIN, call 1-844-469-3264 to reset it.

    It is also important that the cashier knows that you plan to use your WIC card. Tell the cashier right away that you will be using your WIC card, and put your WIC foods down before any other foods. If your card has problems swiping, this may mean that the card has become demagnetized. Contact us for a replacement, and we will mail you a new card.

    The cashier said my foods were not WIC-approved

    Use the WIC Food Scan button in your WIC App to verify that a food is WIC-approved and available with your benefits. If it is, ask to speak to the grocery store manager. The grocery store may need to update its database with that food.

    If the manager is unable to resolve the issue, please call Shopper Support at 1-800-852-5770 to make a report. Have the following information ready:

    • The store location
    • The approximate day and time of visit
    • Product description (brand and size)
    • Any other details ready.

    If you are reporting a food that was in stock but you were unable to purchase it with your WIC benefits, please take a picture of the label, ingredients, and barcode.

    I lost or misplaced my WIC Card

    We are happy to replace your WIC card for any reason. If your card was lost, stolen, or misplaced, let us know right away so we can freeze your account and prevent anyone else from spending your benefits. Requesting a new card is easy. Fill out the WIC Card Replacement Form and we will let you know when a new card is on the way.

    I forgot to buy my WIC foods before the last day

    Check the California WIC app for your benefit start and end dates.

    I can’t make it to the store before my benefits expire

    At this time, online grocery shopping and delivery apps do not accept the WIC card as payment. However, you can give your WIC card to a trusted family member to shop for your WIC foods for you.

    I’m going out of town

    Grocery stores all over California accept the WIC card, so you can use it when you travel anywhere else in the state! Check the California WIC app for other WIC grocers near you. Many WIC items are shelf-stable. Stock up during times you may not need them so you will have them on hand when you do need them.

    The grocery store did not have WIC foods

    Many grocery stores accept the WIC card. Check the California WIC app to see all the places you can shop with WIC benefits. If a grocery store that accepts the WIC card is out of stock of an approved food item, please contact us with the grocery store name, address, and food item you wanted to purchase, so our WIC vendor liaisons can investigate.
