How Can I Get WIC?

Do I qualify?

To qualify for WIC, you must meet income guidelines (PDF) and be in any of the categories below:

  • A pregnant woman
  • A woman breastfeeding a baby under 1 year of age
  • A woman who had a baby or was pregnant in the past 6 months
  • A baby up to his or her first birthday
  • A child up to his or her fifth birthday
  • Babies and children cared for by their fathers, other guardians, or foster parents

Not sure if you qualify?

You may qualify if you receive Medi-Cal, CalWORKs (TANF) or CalFresh (SNAP) benefits. Working families and migrant families are also welcome to apply.

Use the WIC eligibility assessment tool to see if you qualify.

Set up an appointment at a WIC local agency near you! Visit our website for WIC families to find a WIC local agency site near you.

  • Each person who will be enrolling into the WIC program
  • Identification — for yourself and any children age birth to 5 years
  • Proof of address — a document verifying your current address
  • Proof of income — current documents such as paycheck, tax return, or letter from employer
