Governor Wolf issued a proclamation declaring May 2022 WIC Month in Pennsylvania in recognition of the 48th anniversary of the first WIC benefits issued in the state.  The attached proclamation celebrates 48 years of WIC improving maternal and child health, and the successful continuation of uninterrupted WIC services throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Most especially, the proclamation recognizes the dedication of WIC staff who make a profound difference in the lives of families.

We are grateful for all of our WIC staff and the pivotal role they play in keeping Pennsylvania families healthy, and most especially during the ongoing formula crisis.  Their daily work to help families navigate the formula options available to WIC participants and connect them with available resources is protecting infant health and meeting an urgent need.  

Thank you to our WIC team for the essential work you do each day! Click the image below to read the full proclamation:
