it depends on your state. In my state, i can get organic eggs and milk on WIC. there are some restrictions like i cant get raw milk and i have to get AAlarge eggs. and the check is only for so much $$. but i dont drink milk , so i would get organic eggs and cheese and simply not buy the milk.

but i have heard that in other states organic is not allowed. you should talk to your worker. maybe if you say you are a vegitarian ?

there is also chicken pooh in the feed


no wonder regular eggs are so much cheaper, eh? i was at safeway today and it was so tempting, there was a sale , buy one get one free on 1 1/2 doz cartons of eggs! so it would work out to 36 eggs for $1.50 !!!!!!

Recycled animal waste, such as processed chicken manure and litter, has been used as a feed ingredient for almost 40 years. This animal waste contains large amounts of protein, fiber, and minerals, and has been deliberately mixed into animal feed for these nutrients. Generally, animal waste is used within the State where it is produced because the bulk and weight of the product makes interstate shipment uneconomical. Normally, this animal waste is used by small farmers and owners of beef and dairy herds as a winter supplement for mother cows and weaned calves.
