WIC COVID-19 Emergency Response
The safety and health of your family is WIC's utmost priority during the COVID-19 Pandemic. To protect all families and staff, most WIC services will be provided by phone. Please contact us at (910) 347-5002 if you have questions, want to apply for benefits, want to schedule an appointment, need breastfeeding support, or if you need in-person assistance. If you or a family member are currently certified to receive WIC food benefits, the benefits will be added to your eWIC account automatically on your family issue date. Your current eWIC card will be used for future months' WIC food benefits. A WIC representative will contact you to schedule your next appointment, if applicable.
If you have questions, call your local WIC office for specific guidance on how services are being provided. New applicants may self-refer by using the online referral form to initiate the certification process.
