WIC Approved Foods

Beginning March 1, 2021, a new Michigan WIC Food Guide went into effect and the items available for scanning and charging to customers' WIC EBT cards changed. This change occurred when your store's POS accessed the updated Approved Product List (APL).

 

The New Food Guide is below in English, Spanish, and Arabic. To assist Vendors in understanding the changes, a descriptive list of changes and communications related to WIC foods are also listed below.
