Submitting a Request for Food Authorization

MI WIC APL (Approved Products List)

A copy of the most recently published APL in Excel format is available below. The APL lists all of the WIC allowed foods and includes UPCs and product descriptions. Please note that as of right now, multiple items do not have detailed product descriptions and substitute formulas are listed with the same description as the formula they are able to replace.

It is in an excel spreadsheet with the complete APL on the first tab with newly added products highlighted, and separate tab to show recently discontinued products.

Though the APL is updated regularly, the posted version may not contain all authorized UPCs or PLUs. Michigan WIC intends to update the posted APL monthly.

Submitting a Request for Authorization

The Michigan WIC Program is continuing to evaluate new foods to be approved. If you are aware of a food item that meets current WIC Food Guide allowable criteria but is not scanning on your WIC-capable POS system, please submit a request for Michigan WIC to consider items using the form below.


Submission Instructions

The completed form may be sent via email or fax.

Review and Approval of Requests

The Michigan WIC Program will review the food submission request and determine if the product(s) meets the requirements to be added to the Approved Product List (APL). Submitted foods are not considered approved until they are added to the Michigan APL. Food items in food categories that are non-brand specific in the Michigan WIC Food Guide may be added to the Michigan APL immediately. Food submissions for brand-specific food categories will be considered for the next Michigan WIC Food Guide implementation date.
