Please Don’t Stockpile WIC Foods Empty grocery shelves are a common sight right now. If you are not a WIC participant—and are not eligible for WIC benefits—please reconsider purchasing foods with a WIC-approved label next to the price. These foods are for WIC participants who must follow set guidelines for the foods (including brands and sizes) that they can purchase with their WIC benefits. Please be respectful of the needs of your neighbor.
