eWIC for Vendors

Alabama Pre-Pilot Food List

The Alabama WIC Program has collected Universal Product Codes (UPCs) across the state to compile an Alabama Approved Product List (APL). In order to ensure Alabama’s APL encompasses all eligible UPCs, we have published a Pre-Pilot Food List. There may be WIC approved items that have entered the market since our collection efforts. The list does not include UPC/PLUs (Price Look Up) for fresh fruits and vegetables. Vendors will be required to map fresh fruits and vegetables to the International Federation of Produce Standards (IFPS) PLU codes which will be included in Alabama’s APL. NOTE: This is not to be used for submitting food items not currently WIC approved.

If you have items that may be WIC eligible based on the current Alabama WIC Foods Brochure but are not on the list, these items may be submitted for consideration. Complete the form and email to alwicupc@adph.state.al.us. The form must be completed in its entirety for the submission to be considered. Submissions are not a guarantee of placement on the Alabama APL.
