Before you get to the store, it’s a good idea to check your balance and make a grocery list of the WIC foods you’re looking for. And, review a list of Vermont WIC grocery stores.

While shopping, look for “WIC” or “Vermont WIC Approved” on the item’s shelf tag to find WIC-approved foods. Or, use the WICShopper App to scan the item's barcode.

At the register, have your WIC card ready. Tell the cashier you are using a WIC card before the first item is scanned.

When starting out, it’s good to separate your WIC purchases–until you’re comfortable.

Swipe your WIC card and enter your 4-digit PIN. Approved foods will be taken off of your WIC account.

Always pay with WIC first before using other payments such as SNAP, cash, or credit for non-WIC items. Approve your WIC purchase on the display screen or printed list and hit the “yes” button. Once you press “yes” no changes can be made, so be sure to check the list.

Keep your receipt (or take a picture of it) so you can easily find your WIC balance.
