Fruit and Vegetable Bonus Check Reminders:

  • These checks can be used to purchase fresh, frozen, canned and/or dried fruits and vegetables at any DC WIC-authorized store, or with an approved farmer at a local farmer’s market or farm stand.
  • These bonus checks should be used just as any regular cash-value benefit would be used at the grocery store or with an approved farmer.
  • If the price of the fruit and vegetable purchase exceeds the value totaled by the checks presented, you may pay the remaining balance with cash, credit or debit card.

If the price of the fruit and vegetable purchase is less than the value of your check, you cannot receive change for the difference. Make sure to purchase produce that matches the total value of the check!
