Johnson County Community Health Services WIC Announces Walk-in Tuesdays
WARRENSBURG, MISSOURI (December 20, 2018) – The Johnson County Community Health Services WIC (Women, Infants and Children) Program is excited to announce a new initiative starting in January of 2019. Beginning Tuesday, January 8, the WIC Office will offer “Walk-In Tuesdays”. Every Tuesday, WIC participants or those interested in participating can take advantage of services with no appointment needed.
We realize that new and expecting families are busy and have very hectic schedules. Our hope is that by offering Walk-In Tuesdays families can take advantage of all the great WIC services at times that are convenient for them. Walk-In Tuesdays along with our clinic locations in Knob Noster and Holden are a few of the ways we are working with our communities to improve their quality of life.
WIC offers nutrition education, breastfeeding education and support, health promotion, supplemental foods and referrals to other health programs and community services that help families eat healthy and stay well. Nutritious foods provided by WIC include milk, cheese, yogurt, tofu, eggs, beans, whole grains, juice, fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables and infant foods through a personalized food package. WIC also provides breast pumps, personalized education and support by our Lactation Consultants on staff.
