WIC Helpline, toll free 1-888-655-2942, ext 14765 

 The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) clarified today, that participants enrolled in the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Supplemental Nutrition Program from Missouri can redeem their WIC food instruments with any authorized Oklahoma WIC food vendor.  Missouri participants can redeem their food instruments without relocating to Oklahoma until June 30, 2011. 

“This is a small effort on our part to help those, whose neighborhoods were damaged or destroyed by storms, be able to conveniently shop in Oklahoma while they start the process of rebuilding their lives,” said Terry Bryce, chief of OSDH WIC Service. Vendors or individuals with questions about this process may call the OSDH WIC Helpline, toll free 1-888-655-2942, ext 14765.
