Story Highlights

  • When the pandemic hit, WIC moved from in-person appointments to phone appointments, but food benefits still had to be loaded onto eWIC cards in person at two locations—on E. Tampa and in Republic on E. Harrison, according to a news release.

  • WIC’s mission is to safeguard the health of women, infants and children who are at nutritional risk by providing nutritional foods to enhance diets, and to provide information on healthy eating, and referrals to healthcare and other community resources.
