VERMONT WIC IS RESPONDING TO COVID-19

We are committed to providing families with continued support now and in the days ahead. 

Temporary Food Changes in Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We know it has been challenging to find some WIC foods. In response, WIC has temporarily expanded our food list to add options for some hard to find items. Check the expanded food list to see what has been added.  We will continue to work with stores to ensure WIC infant formula is available. Please check at customer service if you are unable to find WIC formula on the shelves.

In the store and not sure if it is newly WIC-approved? Use the WIC Shopper App to scan the bar code, then compare to YOUR family food benefit list to double check.

Please continue to be patient with your grocers as they are working hard to stock their shelves. You can also look for different options you have within each food group in the WIC Foods Guide.

There is misinformation circulating on social media about WIC benefits. We urge families to continue checking this website for the most accurate information about important program changes. 

 WIC appointments are being held over the phone to align with social distancing efforts. Please see the Phone Appointments page for more information. If you have opted in to email and text notifications, you will receive important program updates, including information about local office hours and changes in operations. Contact your local office with any questions about breastfeeding, nutrition or shopping. 

    WIC is here to help you and your family thrive and be healthy.

    WIC is the USDA Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children. WIC gives you access to healthy foods, nutrition education and counseling, and breastfeeding support.
