 WIC Program and WIC Vendor Partnership

The partnership between the Louisiana WIC Program and the WIC-authorized Vendors is an integral component of a successful nutrition program.

The Vendor's role in the process of improving health is an important one. Vendors ensure that WIC participants receive the correct type and amount of food in the month it is intended to be received. This serves as reinforcement to the WIC client's nutrition education. The Vendor's role is essential in making the Louisiana WIC Program successful.

The New WIC Approved Food List is now available. Click here for the list!
