Minimum Stock Levels

Minimum Stock Requirements

Effective March 1, 2016, these minimum stock levels are required of all authorized and applicant grocery vendors. An inability to obtain or continue to stock these minimum amounts and minimum varieties in any category at the store site may result in application denial, or in the case of authorized grocery vendors, sanctions point assessments. Refer to WV WIC Approved Shopping Guide for approved foods and approved packaging sizes. During the on-site inspection performed as part of the application or reauthorization process, or during routine monitoring, a State WIC representative will check your stock levels to ensure these minimum levels are present on the date of review. Do not return the application until the store has all of the stock indicated on the minimum stock grid.
