WIC Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) Cards

The WIC program provides Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards for free food to use at local grocery stores.  Grocery shopping is smart and easy with the WIC EBT card, and you can choose how little or how much you want to buy each time you shop with your WIC EBT card.  WIC food packages typically include:

  •   Low   fat milk
  •   Cheese
  •   Eggs
  •   Juice
  •   Cereal
  •   Whole   grains
  •   Peanut   butter
  •   Fruits   and vegetables
  •   Low-Fat yogurt

Breastfeeding and Formula

WIC food packages promote and support the establishment of successful and long-term breastfeeding. Weekly Breastfeeding Support Groups are held at Flagler Health+. Breastfeeding is the best choice for baby, however, when breastfeeding does not prove to be the best choice for Mom, infant formula can be provided.  The formulas that WIC currently provides include:

  •   Enfamil   Infant
  •   Enfamil   Gentlease
  •   Enfamil   AR
  •   Enfamil   Reguline
  •   Similac   Soy Isomil
