Mississippi State Department of Health

Women, Infants and Children's Nutrition Program (WIC)


WIC is a special supplemental food program for pregnant, breastfeeding, and post-partum women, infants, and children under five years of age. WIC helps you and your baby get healthy foods and healthy advice in the first years of life.

The cash value benefit (CVB) that WIC participants use to purchase fruits and vegetables will change beginning October 5, 2023.

New amounts:

  • $26 for child participants
  • $47 for pregnant and postpartum participants
  • $52 for fully and partially breastfeeding participants

The Federal Fiscal Year 2024 CVB amounts are based on the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2024 and Other Extensions Act. MSDH WIC will notify WIC participants of any changes to these rates for Federal Fiscal Year 2024.
