How do WIC participants receive their food?
WIC eligible family members will receive WIC food benefits and a Michigan WIC Bridge Card during their initial visit to the WIC clinic.
The Michigan WIC Bridge Card contains a magnetic strip with your account information, and is used like a debit card at local grocery stores. Transactions are discreet; most other customers will think you are using a cash card.
Your family's WIC food benefits will be automatically deposited in your account until your next WIC visit. Most families receive three months’ worth of benefits before their next WIC clinic visit.
You will use your Michigan WIC Bridge Card to purchase your WIC food benefits at WIC stores that display the “Michigan WIC Bridge Card Accepted Here Sign”
