PA WIC Offices Open During Federal Government Shut Down



All Women, Infants and Children, or “WIC” offices across the state are open and providing services during the federal government shut down.
 
Department of Health Secretary Michael Wolf says the all local WIC offices are open and are providing vital services to the families and individuals who depend on them in the commonwealth.
 
The department anticipates that the Pennsylvania WIC program can continue normal operations in the short-term due to funds carried forward from the previous year and additional food funds, including rebates.
 
The Pennsylvania WIC program provides services including nutrition services, breastfeeding support, healthcare and social service referrals, and healthy foods, to approximately 250,000 recipients per month. In the fiscal year 2013-2014 their federal budget was approximately $208 million.
