It's Here! The California 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 authorized 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.
