WIC staff will pre-screen for eligibility over the phone, and then schedule an appointment for either a phone or in-person meeting.  When your family qualifies, food benefits will be uploaded to an eWIC card. The eWIC card can be mailed or can be picked up at the office.

Some services, like breast pump assistance,may require a physical visit.

Those who are new to WIC, think they may qualify, or need to renew their benefits should call 509.460.4202
