Let Your WIC Nutrition Card help keep your family healthy!

The WIC Nutrition card when issued for your child or yourself contains basic foods that target nutrients that women and children are at risk for. The foods are aimed at giving children a healthy start in life that may lead to better health throughout their lives.

Nutrition cardIn 2015 Ohio WIC transitioned from issuing food benefits on WIC coupons to putting the WIC foods on a WIC Nutrition card. The WIC Nutrition card is a debit card that holds a WIC participant’s food benefits for the month.

Foods are automatically deducted from the card when purchased at the grocery store. The WIC Nutrition Card makes shopping for WIC foods easier.

Call and make an appointment at the Allen County WIC clinic to see if your Family can benefit from WIC Program help.
