WIC serves low-income pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, infants and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk. WIC is available in Sacramento, CA.
WIC foods include: infant formula, infant and adult cereal, baby food fruits, vegetables and meats, whole wheat bread, brown rice, soft corn and whole wheat tortillas, juice, eggs, milk, cheese, peanut butter, dried beans or peas, fruits and vegetables, soy beverage, tofu, and canned fish. There are no fees for the WIC authorization process. Each State is responsible for authorizing stores to accept WIC checks. At a minimum, the State will consider the prices of foods, the business integrity of the store’s owner including if the owner has been disqualified from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and the variety and quantity of foods available in the store. Almost 46,000 stores are currently authorized to accept WIC checks
