If someone is working, can they apply for WIC?
Yes, WIC looks at income, not whether or not someone is working.
Can someone be on WIC and food stamps at the same time?
If someone is no longer eligible for food stamps, are they eligible for WIC?
Yes, they may possibly still be income eligible.
Can someone be on both WIC and the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP)?
No, an individual may not be on both programs at the same time. Although, a family may have some family members on WIC and others on Commodity Supplemental Food Program.
Do I need a scheduled appointment to enroll in WIC?
The Battle Creek WIC Office allows pregnant women and new moms and babies to come in every Thursday between 8:30 - 10 AM and 1 - 3 PM for open enrollment. All other days and sites offer enrollment by appointment.
Do I have to come into the WIC Office to complete my nutrition education between enrollment periods?
Not necessarily. You may qualify to complete your nutrition education online at wichealth.org and then call the office to get more benefits remotely added to your card without coming in.
