Make an Appointment

Whether you are new to WIC or a returning client, making an appointment is easy. Follow the link below to fill out your information and make an appointment.


What to bring to your appointment:

Each woman child and infant applying for WIC MUST be present at the appointment. Each individual will need identification such as a birth certificate, driver's license, crib, card or Medicaid card. A PHOTO ID will be required of all adults.

Examples include a bill or Medicaid card with your current street address on it. No P.O. boxes will be accepted.

Examples include pay stubs showing gross (household) income for the last 30 days or a current Medicaid Card.


In addition to nutritious foods, WIC participants also have access to free educational materials and classes. These resources help parents understand what a child should and should not eat as they mature. Participants of the WIC program are required to attend WIC classes online or in person every six months.

Explore the links below to find classes. When you arrive at your appointment, let us know which classes you completed to get credit.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Do I need proof that I am pregnant?

  • Proof of pregnancy is not required for a WIC appointment.
Do student loans count as income? 
  • Student loans are not considered income for the WIC program. If student loans are your only source of income and you are not receiving Medicaid or SNAP benefits, please contact the WIC clinic to see what you need to bring for proof of income. 
Can I count children that I pay child support for as part of my household, even though they don't live with me? 
  • Children who are not living with the household do not count as part of the household.
Do you accept social security cards as ID?
  • Social Security Cards are not accepted for ID at the WIC office. Acceptable forms of ID include a birth certificate, Medicaid card, passport or current work or school ID. For infants under the age of one year, hospital documentation or hospital bracelet can also be used for ID. 
What if I move? 
  • Since WIC is a federal program, your WIC benefits can be transferred with you. Please contact your current WIC clinic prior to your move to obtain transfer papers. 

Do I need to bring my children? 

  • At growth checks and certification appointments, children must attend for measurements unless a medical provider has declared them unable to leave the home. For food changes or in person classes, children are not required to attend but are always welcome at the WIC clinic.
Can someone else bring my children to an appointment? 
  • Only legal guardians may attend certification and follow-up appointments with children.  In certain circumstances, the state office can approve other arrangements.  Please call your local WIC clinic if you need to discuss these arrangements. 
What if I lost my eWIC card? 
  • Please call or text your WIC clinic as soon as you think you may have lost your eWIC card.  Unused WIC benefits can be replaced following a three day wait period.  You will need to make an appointment to bring your ID to the WIC clinic to receive a replacement card. 
Can I allow someone else to use my WIC card? 
  • Your WIC packet allows for a single additional guardian and up to two proxies.  An additional guardian for the children has all the same rights and responsibilities as the original endorser on the packet.  A proxy may attend class appointments or use the eWIC card at the grocery store.  Either can be added without an appointment by making a new packet at your local WIC clinic.  Please bring current ID.
