Vendor Communications

Vendor Bulletins are used to inform vendors about important WIC issues, such as:

  • Changes to (or clarifications of) the WIC Acceptable Foods Card

  • Changes to (or clarifications of) minimum stocking requirements

  • Policy updates and contract information

Reminders of existing policies and procedures

Vendor Bulletins contain important information and need to be reviewed upon receipt. Vendor Bulletins should be shared with all store employees that handle WIC transactions and checks.


The NYS WIC Program will be holding quarterly WIC webinars to share important program information with the WIC vendor community. Save the dates! To get on a mailing list for information on upcoming webinars please send an email to​
