    WIC helps you buy foods that keep you and your kids healthy. After you qualify for WIC you will receive an eWIC Electronic Benefit card to buy WIC Approved Foods. Benefits are loaded on the card and available to use at the grocery store. A participant would use the card as they use a credit card. After checkout, a receipt is printed that lists what remaining benefits exist. This helps participants to fully use all of their benefits each month.
