WIC BenefitsWIC now provides food through an EBT card. WIC foods are selected for a person on WIC to help meet the dietary guidelines for Americans. You will receive an EBT card to buy foods such as milk, 100% juice, peanut butter, beans, fruits and vegetables, whole grain products, and baby food  fruits/vegetables. Participants redeem these benefits at WIC eligible grocery stores.
