• WIC remains open to serve eligible family members. There have been some modifications in how services are provided in response to COVID-19. If you or a family member are currently certified to receive WIC food benefits the benefits will be added to your eWIC account on your family issue date without any further action. This will limit personal interactions at the local WIC clinic. If you need breastfeeding support, any food package change, or need to update certification please follow the instructions from your local WIC agency. Keep your current eWIC card. Your current eWIC card will be used for future months WIC food benefits. If you have questions, call your local WIC office for specific guidance on how services are being provided. New applicants may self-refer by using the online referral form to initiate the certification process. • NC WIC COVID-19 food package waivers were approved until May 31, 2020. If a store is out of the product type/size issued in food benefits, the following items are allowed:
       ◦ Bread - 100% whole wheat or whole grain, any size 16-24 oz.
       ◦ Milk - when issued skim/non-fat or 1%, you can get 2%.
