WIC in Vermont

For Vendors

WIC FoodsVermont WIC uses a home delivery system to distribute the majority of the WIC food benefit. Starting in October 2009, Vermont added retail grocers as authorized WIC vendors, but only for the fruits and vegetables in the new WIC food package. Follow the links below for guidance, forms and materials for home delivery and retail vendors.

In June 2015, Vermont WIC began transitioning from home deliveries of WIC foods to using an electronic benefits transfer program. Participants will use their new Vermont WIC card to buy all WIC food items at an authorized grocery store.
