WIC Now Offering Electronic Benefits!

CaliforniaWICCard_NewsFlash

Nevada County WIC is thrilled to introduce the California WIC Card! Starting September 23rd, the WIC Card will replace the current paper food checks and will provide an easier way to receive and use food benefits, as well as improve the shopping experience for WIC families and grocers.

Each family will receive one WIC Card for all of their family's food benefits. The WIC Card will provide a more convenient way for families to shop for WIC foods and provide flexibility to get just what they need at each shopping trip. In addition, families will not lose their WIC food benefits if their WIC Card is lost, stolen or damaged. The new California WIC app will be able to scan items to see if they're WIC approved, check appointments, and remaining benefits.

WIC programs help to support low-income families and their young children providing funds for healthy foods, nutrition education, skilled breastfeeding support, and referrals to healthcare and other community services. WIC serves babies and children up to age 5, pregnant women, new mothers, dads, grandparents, and foster parents of young children. Working families are welcome too! WIC benefits can be used to purchase lots of whole food options and we offer many organic foods, as well. To see if you qualify for our program, learn more about the new system, or make an appointment, call the WIC Front Desk at 530-265-1454 or email us at WICNevadaCounty@co.nevada.ca.us.
