Requesting Formula and Foods

WIC can provide noncontract formula and modified food packages when needed.* Before requesting a noncontract formula, check the list of WIC contract formulas below to see if WIC already offers a formula that is appropriate for your patient. If there is not a suitable choice, OR if you need to request any type of formula for a patient over 12 months of age (contract or noncontract), you’ll need to complete a request form.
