WIC Project Fresh can provide healthy and nutritious produce to Michigan WIC participants. The program provides low-income nutritional-at-risk clients with eligible, locally grown, fresh, unprepared fruits and vegetables from authorized farmers, farmers’ markets, or roadside stands throughout Michigan.
How Do WIC Project Fresh Coupons Work? Enrolled WIC participants, excluding infants may be eligible to receive a $25 booklet containing $5 coupons to be used. June 1 through October 31st in the year the booklet is issued, it is the responsibility of the WIC local agency staff to identify eligible participants and issue their coupons at either the local WIC agencies, farmers’ market, or roadside stands. What May be Purchased with WIC Project Fresh Coupons?
WIC Project Fresh Coupons can only be used to buy eligible, locally grown, fresh, unprepared fruits and vegetables from authorized farmers, farmers’ markets and roadside stands. WIC participants are encouraged to use all their coupons during the season to help meet their special nutritional needs. We especially promote the purchase of broccoli, carrots, potatoes, squash, peaches, apples and tomatoes. A variety of produce rich in Vitamin A, C, and Folic Acid are emphasized.
