WIC is open and here to support your family. Due to COVID-19, many services are now being provided by phone. Contact your clinic to find out what appointment options you may have. Need the number? Tap the “Find a WIC Office” button on this app. For more food assistance resources, call or click the bilingual (English & Spanish) Food Resource Hotline, (855) 855-4626.
- Go as early in the month as possible and shop early in the day when shelves are freshly stocked and there may be fewer crowds.
- Grocery pick-up/delivery of WIC food purchases is not available. Many stores have special shopping times for seniors and other vulnerable populations. Pregnant women should consider shopping during these times. You can also send a person you trust to go shopping for you.
- You can use self checkout at King Soopers, City Market and Walmart stores.
- If you can’t find the WIC foods you normally buy, look at the COWIC Foods List or the WICShopper app for other options. For example, powdered or canned milk instead of fresh, buy quarts or half gallons of milk, brown rice instead of bread, medium eggs instead of large eggs, 100% whole wheat hamburger or hotdog buns instead of loaves.
- You may want to go to another store. You can use part of your benefit at a time with your eWIC card.
- If formula shelves are empty, ask a store employee if they know when it will be available or if there is additional stock in the back.
- Use the WICShopper app to help with shopping; be sure to register your eWIC card.
