Request for Public Comments on Florida’s WIC Program

The WIC Program (the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children) is soliciting comments and suggestions about its program and how service delivery can be improved to better meet the clients’ needs. WIC is federally funded by the United States Department of Agriculture, and serves low- and moderate-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women; infants; and children up to age 5. The program provides a combination of nutritious foods, nutrition education, breastfeeding support, and referrals for health care. WIC is available in all 67 counties in Florida. If you have any comments or suggestions, please direct them to: Cheryl Miller, Department of Health, WIC and Nutrition Services, BIN #A-16, 4052 Bald Cypress Way, Tallahassee, FL 32399-1726; or by Fax (850)922-3936. Your feedback is essential and is appreciated before August 15, 2006. WIC is an equal opportunity provider.
