Pitt County WIC Resumes In-Person Visits
Benefits issued immediately during in-person assessment
PITT COUNTY, N.C.-- The Pitt County Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program, located at 201 Government Circle, Greenville, N.C., is resuming in-person visits for Pitt County clients. In-person visits allow staff to better assess nutrition status and breastfeeding needs. Clients who are approved for services are issued their benefits on the spot. Remote appointments are still available on a case by case basis.
In addition, some food package flexibilities for current clients have expired. Clients over two years old will now routinely receive non-fat or 1% milk options. Other changes include whole grain bread and formula can size options.
WIC is a supplemental nutrition program for women, infants and children up to age 5. The WIC Program serves as a resource for clients to receive nutrition education, breastfeeding support and services and healthy food. It also serves as a referral resource for healthcare and other programs.
