COVID-19 Update

WIC Foods

WIC staff are working diligently with stores to find solutions to this situation, affecting families across the nation. We understand the worry families utilizing WIC benefits feel and want to assure our participants, we are in contact with our Infant Formula suppliers who have assured us they have plentiful inventory and have ramped up production. Additionally, we are working with Retail Partners to prepare for April 1, when we know many families will be shopping. We ask that you remain patient and safe during this time.

We will have forthcoming information next week regarding shopping for WIC Foods.

WIC vendors have outlined the additional steps stores are taking to include increasing store sanitation and working closely with suppliers to ensure the availability of high-demand items.

Nevada SNAP and WIC continue to monitor the overall functionality of the retail grocery system for approved food items Nevada participants can obtain.

Local WIC clinics in your neighborhood continue to conduct business either over the phone and mail or in person through appointments.
