Even if you have an appointment it can still take a good hour or two before you're finally out of there with your checks, or at least that's how it is at my WIC office. I just started it too. I remember checking when my oldest was a baby and we made too much money, but our second put us under the income guide lines. I like it and it's worth the hassle. For a 1 year old and 3 year old we get: 7 gallons of milk, 6 pounds of block cheese, 2 pounds of dried beans (lentils), 4 dozen eggs, 8 frozen concentrates of juice, and about 4 boxes of cereal. That's a lot more than we can eat in a month. The new food package will start in October and I'm really looking forward to the fresh produce and ww grain products.
