WIC Public Meeting To Be Held May 23

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) has scheduled a public meeting in conjunction with the development of the 2014 State Plan of Program Operations and Administration.  The State Plan is the main source of information as to how WIC works in Pennsylvania.  The Plan explains what plans have been made to improve WIC operations for the coming year.  It is used by legislators, government officials and others to make decisions about WIC policies and procedures.  It is important to have participants’ ideas and thoughts so that the Program effectively provides the services needed by participants. The informal meeting is to record public comments and will not include a presentation of the WIC Program.  The meeting will be held between 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM on the following date:
