False Social Media Posts About WIC Formula

Recently, posts have been made on social media indicating that if parents cannot find formula for their children, they should call the WIC program for help, even if they are not current participants. As the WIC Nutrition program provider in Northeast Pennsylvania, Maternal & Family Health Services would like to correct that misconception. Income eligibility requirements for the program are still in effect at this time, and are available on our website. Currently, we are serving our clients in a limited capacity in order to maintain social distancing. A full breakdown of service changes due to COVID-19 is available here.

In the interest of the health and safety for all the families we serve, we ask that you please reschedule your appointment if you or anyone in your household has: 

Fever, chills, coughing, signs for respiratory illness or flu-like symptoms 

Or has recently: traveled out of the country, or to an area with widespread cases of Coronavirus, or if you have been in contact with anyone know to have the virus. 

Call 1-866-942-8463 to reschedule your WIC appointment.
