A message from Wisconsin WIC
WIC is continuing to provide services at this unprecedented time. In the past week, WIC has made a number of adjustments to our WIC services in order to serve our Wisconsin families, but minimize exposure. Below you will find messaging to share with your staff and families on how WIC programs are continuing to serve their communities.
- WIC is still open for business! – We are adjusting the way we handle appointments, instead of in person visits we are conducting most remotely over the phone.
- WIC benefits remain valid – We are not planning to make any changes to the way in which participants receive their benefits. Benefits are issued remotely to a participant’s eWIC card.
- WIC foods are still available – Grocery stores are especially busy and in a lot of cases stock levels for WIC-approved foods are low. Please be assured we are continually monitoring the situation. Manufacturers are reporting that warehouses are fully stocked with WIC approved foods. Grocery stores are waiting for their regular shipments, so we’re encouraging participants to shop early in the morning to increase their likelihood of finding fully stocked shelves
Thank you for your continued work in serving Wisconsin families.
