- WIC Joins Fight Against Childhood Hunger
WIC Joins Fight Against Childhood Hunger
Texas WIC is joining the Texas Department of Agriculture to ensure children get a healthy meal when school is out.
Nearly two-and-a-half million Texas children qualify for free or reduced priced meals during the school year. Yet only 11 percent of those children participate in the Summer Meals program. More Texas WIC offices are now stepping up. “Many children get two free meals a day at school. So when school is out, that’s ten additional meals a family has to provide. Many of these families have children under age five who are also eligible for WIC. Signing up for WIC can help families stretch their dollars,” said WIC Director Clarissa Ramirez. Ramirez office will offer all children under 18 a meal when they come in for their regular WIC appointment. Clinic staff also give the family information on where they can get a meal every other day of the week.
The office is also kicking off a series of outreach activities to ensure families that are eligible for WIC are receiving the healthy food they need. “WIC is so much more than a food program. The food we provide is shown to reduce childhood obesity, and our Registered Dietitians give families valuable guidance that can keep Texas families not only fed but healthy” Ramirez added.
