Oklahoma WIC Program to Accept WIC Food Instruments from Missouri Storm Victims

Residents from Missouri displaced by this week’s storms and who qualify for the WIC (Women, Infants and Children) supplemental nutrition program in Missouri will be able to redeem their food instruments in Oklahoma through the month of June, the Oklahoma State Department of Health announced today.

Those WIC recipients from Missouri who may be living temporarily in Oklahoma with friends or family or who may have relocated to Oklahoma can redeem their food instruments with any Oklahoma authorized WIC food vendor.

“Every effort is being made to serve those WIC participants displaced by the Joplin tornado,” said Terry Bryce, chief of WIC Services at the Oklahoma State Department of Health. Vendors or individuals with questions about this process may call Bryce at (405) 420-4694.
