WIC Families Provided Increased Allowance of Veggies and Fruits

HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – With the recent passage of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), State Women Infants and Children Agencies are able to enhance benefits for the next four months.

This expands the vegetable and fruit voucher from $9 a month for children and $11 a month for women to $35 a month per participant from now through September 30th in Montana.

WIC’s vegetable and fruit voucher was introduced in 2007 as part of an effort to increase the nutritional quality of WIC-approved foods.

Montana residents can find out if they are eligible for WIC by visiting signupwic.com.

Appointments are available. For more information, contact Hill County WIC by phone at 400-2421 or by email at nhungerford@mt.gov.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
