The Arkansas WIC Program relies on grocery stores (WIC vendors) as an effective and convenient means for participants to obtain WIC foods. The program provides participants with WIC Food Checks for specific quantities and types of foods and Cash Value Benefits (CVB) for fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables. Participating WIC vendors accept these checks and CVBs in exchange for the WIC food items. WIC vendors process the checks and CVBs in accordance with the Arkansas WIC Program Vendor Handbook and Program Information.
