Texas WIC is has extended a popular expanded benefit to get even more WIC produce through Dec. 31. The extra benefits will be added to your card to redeem with your other WIC benefits.
According to TexasWIC.org the extended fruit and vegetable benefits provide the following:
Children get $24 (in fruit and vegetable benefits) each month
Pregnant, postpartum and some breastfeeding clients get $43 each month
Fully and partially breastfeeding clients get $47 each month
For example, if you are pregnant and have two children (ages 1-5) receiving WIC, you will get $91 ($43 mom + $24 child + $24 child = $91) each month in October, November and December to buy fruit and vegetables.
