  • Well if were me i would just give it away, because you got it for free right? BTW you can tell wic, you kid don't like the rice cereal and they can change it to something else.

  • I also agree. If you get it for free and really feel you cannot use it you should give it to someone who needs it. But I don't know if it's against the rules; I imagine they wouldn't look too fondly on that, though.

  • Its not only wrong, its illegal and if you're caught you can get your benefits taken away and unable to ever apply for WIC again.

  • The WIC office will tell you to just not buy what you don't need or the child won't eat.

  • It is wrong. You got something for free and are now expecting to sell it. But people do it all the time I suppose. It is, although, against the wic rules but I don't know what measures they would take if they were to find out.

  • And also, if you don't want something that is on the check just don't get it and tell the cashier that you don't need the missing items.

  • It's in your folder that that's against the rules and if you get caught they will sever you from the program. If you don't want it just don't get it. You don't have to get everything on the coupon every week. There are many weeks I skip the eggs because we have to many.
