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.

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.

I have downloaded and deleted the app already and still can't even register my account. It keeps saying "Invalid WIC information". I was super excited once I heard this was the direction for accessing WIC and I absolutely hate that it doesn't work the way it was intended. Maybe once I'm able to register my account I will have a better experience, BUT FOR NOW I FEEL IT'S TERRIBLE!!!

I like that I can view my benefits and that they update after purchasing to tell me what I have left. But I am very frustrated that I can't get the barcode scanner to work to see if something is WIC approved. It just doesn't scan. Tried on both my phone and my partner's phone and it just does nothing. Please fix this!
