The California WIC Card is Coming to Long Beach Soon! 

Shopping with WIC Cards will be easier than using paper checks.

Flexible shopping
Get your WIC foods as you need them

Easier checkout
Shopping with your WIC Card will be like using a debit card.

Convenient Benefits
Carry all your family’s WIC food benefits on one card.

Starting in November, Long Beach WIC will provide you with a WIC card instead of paper checks providing an easier way to issue food benefits, as well as improve the shopping experience for WIC families and grocers.

  • Each family will receive one WIC card for their entire family's food benefits.
  • You can shop for as few or as many WIC foods as you need at each shopping trip.
  • If your card is lost, stolen, or damaged, it CAN be replaced.
  • Download the free app that allows you to scan a food item's barcode to confirm that it is a WIC food.
Helpful Hint! Use the CA WIC App to scan your WIC foods before heading to the register. It will tell you two things: if an item is WIC approved and if it is a current benefit on your card. Please keep in mind that some items that you were able to purchase with your WIC checks may no longer be available with your WIC Card.



Some Important information to think about before we release the card:

Give yourself time.
Allow a little extra time for your WIC appointment so you can learn about your new WIC card without feeling rushed.

Think of a PIN.
Think of a 4 digit number that is easy for you to remember and difficult for others to guess. You will need a 4 digit PIN to use your WIC card at the store.

Save these phone numbers or take a picture of the back of your WIC card.
