Maryland WIC Mobile App

WIC app login screen

For smart phone users, the Maryland WIC Mobile App can be very helpful to WIC families. You can download the app, MD WIC, from the Google Play or iPhone stores. To register, participants just need an active Maryland eWIC Card. 

Participants can view information about:

  • WIC food benefit balance
  • WIC appointments
  • WIC Authorized Foods List
  • Approved WIC stores

While shopping, participants can scan a UPC (Barcode) to see if the food is WIC approved and available in their WIC food balance. Participants can also receive alerts for upcoming appointments and benefits about to expire. The app is available in English and Spanish.
