GET YOUR WIC VOUCHERS NOW THROUGH OCTOBER
The WIC Voucher Program (formally known as the Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program) is a seasonal, supplemental nutrition benefit program for households that receive WIC benefits. This program aims to increase access to fresh fruits and vegetables for young children (1-5 years old) and mothers (pregnant, post-partum, or breastfeeding). From April to October, eligible participants receive $30 worth of vouchers to purchase fresh, Texas-grown fruits and vegetables at participating farmers’ markets. These vouchers are in addition to monthly benefits received throughout the year.
When WIC participants get their vouchers at Double Up Food Bucks locations in Austin, they are doubled $1 for $1. This means families can receive a total of $60 (per eligible WIC participant) to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables. You can double your vouchers at the following locations:
Although WIC vouchers expire on October 31st, the matching Double Up Food Bucks do not expire and can be used throughout the year at the locations above or Farmshare Austin’s mobile markets.
