About this app

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) is a federally-funded health and nutrition program.

WIC provides families with:

- Information about nutrition and a healthy lifestyle to support you and your family

- Support and information about breastfeeding your baby

- Help in finding health care and other valuable community services

- Healthy foods from WIC approved grocery stores such as fruits and vegetables, whole grains, milk, eggs, bread, cereal, juice, peanut butter, soy milk, tofu and much more.

Participants must meet income guidelines and be:

- A pregnant woman

- A woman breastfeeding a baby under 1 year of age

- A woman who had a baby in the past 6 months

- Have an infant(s) up to their first birthday

- Have a child(ren) up to their fifth birthday

In California, 83 WIC agencies provide services locally to about 1.16 million participants each month at over 600 sites throughout the state. In accordance with Federal law and U.S. Department of Agriculture policy, WIC is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.

The California WIC App will give WIC participants the opportunity to view upcoming appointments, view food benefits that have been issued to them in the clinic, scan UPCs while shopping at the store to see if the UPC is a WIC Approved item or not, and provide information on locations of WIC Stores and WIC Clinics across the State of California. The goal of the California WIC App is to give participants all the information they need at their fingertips to make their shopping experience fun and easy.

For the past few updates, it works perfectly... except for not showing me my current remaining food balance in each category. It used to be so helpful when I was shopping but now other than the scanner, it's not helpful at all. And I like to plan how much and how often I buy things. It's harder to balance my food budget when this app isn't working correctly.

The app is always crashing. Lately it won't even let me sign in without an error message popping up. And when you can sign in, the balance isn't always shown correctly. So at the register, you either pay out of pocket for the items you thought were covered, or you leave them. This is frustrating because I rely on the app to keep my balance up to date to shop accordingly.

Its okay to just to keep up with your balance but the main feature that is supposed to make this app worth the time to download is that you can scan items to see if a particular item is covered. It was so useful (WHEN IT WORKED) especially when you just let those small details slip on by; it ends up costing you when it shouldn't. I've tried deleting and reinstalling the app multiple times and its never fixed itself. I'll keep it to check my balance but it's main convenience is gone
