WIC Benefits Update

Effective 10/1/2016, Ohio WIC changed from Similac infant formula to Gerber infant formula.  If you are a WIC participant, your benefits were switched to a Gerber Formula similar to the one you were using before.  If you have any questions, please contact your WIC clinic.


WIC Nutrition Card

Ohio WIC has developed an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) system to replace its paper coupons. Lake County began the transition to the EBT smartcard in August 2015.  There are many advantages to this upgrade including faster and easier check-outs at the register.
