Missouri WIC program to see a temporary increase in funds

Fruits and Vegetable purchases will rise to $35 per month

The Missouri WIC program is temporarily increasing the Cash Value Benefit for Fruit and Vegetables to $35 per month for eligible women and children, according to an MDHSS news release.

The American Rescue Plan Act gave the USDA authority to temporarily increase the CVB during the federally declared Covid-19 pandemic.

Standard CVB values range from $9 – $11.

Those who are eligible should contact their WIC local agency to schedule an appointment to load the additional funds on their eWIC card before June 1 to avoid delays.
