WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - The WIC Program is offering eligible recipients more money this summer.

If you’re signed up for WIC, starting next month in June and ending in September you’ll see an increase from $9 to $35 for fruits and veggies.

WIC is adding that $35 to EBT benefits cards each month per participant from June to September.

“This increase is hopefully going to help clients have more access in the summer time for fruits and vegetables that are in season and we constantly have clients asking for more of the fruits and vegetables,” said Mehgan White, WF-WC Public Health District client services coordinator.

Take the WIC shopping list to the food bank and they’ll give you $30 worth of vouchers to use for the Farmer’s Market.

If you’re not on WIC and think you may qualify, you can apply at texaswic.org.
