Shutdown Currently Not Affecting WIC Money
The health department reports no deadlines have been issued by the state of Illinois to any WIC grocery vendors in Illinois in terms of acceptance of WIC food vouchers and that information is currently being charged among Illinois WIC agencies and larger chain WIC vendors across the state.
Active WIC participants who have experienced difficulty in redeeming current WIC vouchers should contact their local WIC office. Marion County residents may contact the Centralia WIC office at 532-6518 or the Salem WIC office at 548-3878.
All WIC vendors are to direct vendor related questions to their Illinois WIC vendor contact person. The Marion County Health Department will release updates concerning any Illinois WIC program changes as new information is released.
