WIC Shopper App Updated – Women, Infants, and Children (WIC)


The WIC Shopper App has been updated! Grocery shopping for foods allowed by your WIC* program can be confusing. Much of the problem is from not knowing exactly what products you can purchase with your WIC benefits. WICShopper is here to help you shop with confidence. Using WICShopper, you can check the WIC eligibility of products while you shop! In all of our supported WIC programs, you can use your phone to scan products to check their WIC eligibility.

In most supported states, you may register your eWIC card, then automatically download your CURRENT benefits every time you shop! WICShopper doesn’t just tell you if the product is WIC eligible… it tells you if you have enough WIC benefits left to purchase the product!

Now you can check the app to see your balance (may not reflect your current balance).

See the instructions and additional information below!
