Food and Feeding

Better Food, Better Health

New WIC food packages were implemented in Vermont in October 2009. While home delivery remains the primary distribution system for most WIC foods, Vermont WIC welcomed retail grocers to our distribution system specifically to provide a variety of fresh, frozen and canned fruits and vegetables.
Because of the dual delivery system for WIC, the WIC Approved Foods are listed in two separate sections below: Home Delivery and Retail Delivery.
