Vendors (Participating Stores)

WIC vendors or retailers are critical partners in the WIC delivery system. Each month, WIC participants receive WIC food instruments or cash value vouchers, which contain a “food prescription” designed to meet their specific nutritional needs. The retail store fills the prescription and makes sure the participant receives exactly the foods prescribed.

In providing this service, WIC vendors play an important role in helping to improve the health of American Samoa women, infants and children. It is only when WIC food instruments or cash value vouchers are properly exchanged for the specific foods that the desired dietary supplementation can be achieved.

WIC participants may shop at any authorized WIC vendor’s store. The WIC vendor may find the WIC program makes a substantial contribution to food sales.
