At a WIC center–applying for WIC
• It is better if you make an appointment before you come to apply. Call (310) 661-3080.
• But if you don’t have an appointment, come anyway!
• Bring proof of income. This could be your Medi-Cal card or your pay stub or your husband’s pay stub or your partner’s pay stub.
• If you don’t have proof of income, come to a WIC center anyway. A staff member will talk with you.
• Bring something that shows the address where you live. This can be any mail that includes your address.

If you can’t bring all the paperwork WIC needs
• If you can’t bring the paperwork WIC needs, come to one of our WIC centers anyway.
• We can enroll you for 30 days. After that, you must bring the paperwork WIC requires.

When you visit WIC
• Together you and the WIC educator will determine if you are eligible.
• If you are eligible, the WIC educator will enroll you or your child.
• You can ask questions and tell her or him your concerns.
