WIC Authorized Food List Shopping Guide

The WIC Authorized Food List Shopping Guide (Shopping Guide) is an educational tool that provides information about the foods authorized by WIC. It is designed for participants and WIC authorized vendors to use at the grocery store to help identify WIC foods. The current Shopping Guide became effective on April 2, 2019. The Shopping Guide is reviewed and revised periodically.

WIC families can also get a copy of the current Shopping Guide from their local WIC office. This document is intended for educational purposes only and does not create any rights, obligations or affirmative duties, and does not replace or supersede the WIC Bulletin Regulations. A complete copy of the regulations summarized in this document can be found at www.wicworks.ca.gov.
