Shopper App Tips

Know your WIC food benefits

You're only allowed to buy foods in your WIC food package. Even if a food scans “WIC allowed,” it may not be allowed for you to buy as part of your WIC benefits. For example, canned fish must be listed in your food package for you to buy it at the store. You have to have your WIC Card registered in your app or the app won't know what items are allowed in your family's food benefits....

Individual WIC benefits and WICShopper app

If you have a WIC Card, you can register it to your WICShopper app. Once registered you'll have access to:

  • Up-to-date WIC food benefit balances.
  • Notifications when benefits are about to expire.
  • Ability to scan food items and know:
    • Is this a WIC allowed item?
    • Can I purchase this with my current benefit balance?
  • Updated Cereal and Produce calculators to help keep track of and use benefits.

Fresh fruits and vegetables

Fresh fruits and vegetables will scan as "Not a WIC Item" even though most fresh produce is WIC allowed. Check out WIC Allowable Foods on your app for any rules about buying fresh fruits and vegetables.
