VERMONT WIC IS RESPONDING TO COVid-19

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

Phone Appointments

WIC appointments are being held over the phone to align with social distancing. 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 and to opt in for email and text notifications if you are not already receiving them and would like to. 

Temporary Food Changes in Response to COVID-19

We know it has been challenging to shop and find some WIC foods so 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.  This expanded list of WIC foods will be available until September 30, 2020. 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.

Farm-to-Family Program

The Farm-to-Family Program gives WIC families a free coupon booklet worth $30 for locally grown, fresh vegetables and fruits from participating farmers’ markets to use during the summer. WIC receives a limited supply of coupons and we do not have any left for this year. If you filled out the interest form that was posted, your family will be notified about receiving coupons through WIC. If you did not complete the interest form and are interested in receiving Farm-to-Family coupon booklets, please contact your local Community Action Agency to see if they have coupons available. 

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