What is WIC?
The Special Supplemental Food Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) provides supplemental foods, nutrition education, breastfeeding support and referrals to eligible clients. The supplemental foods are provided through authorized grocery stores. Each authorized vendor must have a contract in place with the ITCA WIC Program. The role of a WIC vendor is important to provide the best nutritional services to clients. The ITCA WIC Program currently has about 148 authorized vendors throughout Arizona.
How do I become an authorized Vendor?
ITCA will authorize a limited number of vendors. A limited number and appropriate distribution of vendors will assure that vendors are conveniently accessible to clients and that program staff can effectively monitor and ensure vendor compliance.
