Food Checks

WIC participants receive monthly food checks for specific foods prescribed to meet their individual needs. WIC foods are high in protein, iron and vitamins A and C. Examples of such foods are milk, cheese, eggs, peanut butter, dried beans, iron fortified cereal, 100% juice high in vitamin C and iron-fortified infant formula. Food checks are redeemed at contracted local grocery stores and pharmacies.
