How to use your California WIC Card

Do You Have Your New WIC Card?

Say goodbye to paper checks! Starting March 9, 2020, Fresno County WIC participants will be able to get the WIC Card. The WIC Card is like a debit card. You can use your WIC Card to buy WIC-approved foods at WIC stores. Your local agency will add your family’s benefits to your WIC Card account.

Other exciting changes include:

  • Mobile WIC Phone App.
    • Check your balance
    • Scan foods to see if they are WIC approved
    • Check date and time for your appointments
    • Locate WIC clinics and approved grocers
    • And more from the convenience of your phone
  • Flexible spending. Spend a little or a lot on each grocery trip.
  • Security. If you lose your card, benefits can be locked until you replace your card.
