Women, Infants, & Children (WIC)
The North Carolina WIC Program provides supplemental nutritious foods, nutrition education, breastfeeding support, and referrals to health care and community resources.
The Granville Vance Public Health WIC Program has moved to an electronic benefit transfer system called eWIC. Instead of paper food instruments, food benefits will be issued to an electronic benefit account. Families will use their eWIC card and PIN to access their food benefits at the grocery store following a shopping list provided at the local agency.
