Important Update

2023-10-06T19:38:45+00:00October 5th, 2023|Categories: Dallas, East Texas, Grocery Services North, Texas WIC|

The Government is open. Texas WIC is operating as usual, and WIC benefits are being issued like they always have been. There have been no changes to the WIC program. 

 Since talk began of a government shutdown, some WIC clients may be confused about the status of the WIC program. A government shutdown was recently avoided, and WIC is operating as usual. Congress is still working to get the government funded past Nov. 17th. While we can’t speak for WIC, we don’t believe there will be any impact to the program in the near future. 

Grocery Services North stores are helping customers redeem benefits as usual. We are open for business. We hope to see you soon.
