New Michigan WIC Food Guide Announcement

Beginning March 1, 2021, a new Michigan WIC Food Guide will go into effect and the items available for scanning and charging to customers' WIC EBT cards will change. This change will occur when your store's point-of-sale (POS) system automatically updates to include the new Approved Product List (APL).

 

For Vendors to reference, the New Food Guide in English, Spanish, and Arabic, a descriptive list of changes to the Michigan WIC Food Guide, and communications to Vendors are listed below.
