Press release from Alachua County on behalf of Florida Department of Health in Alachua County
The Alachua Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) supplemental program, administered through the Alachua County Health Department and covering Alachua, Bradford, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Levy, Lafayette, Suwannee, and Union counties, remains open to serve the public during the COVID-19 public health crisis.
“During these stressful times, you can get WIC from home,” said Community Program Manager Diana Duque. “There is no need to come into the office. We are providing enrollment, nutrition education, breastfeeding support, benefit issuance, and community referrals all via phone. If needed, we can accept verification documents through fax or email. Many people are finding themselves in new financial situations, and we want them to know that we are still here, stronger than ever, to help them provide for their families.”
WIC is a nutrition program for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or who have recently been pregnant, infants, and children under age five.
