“WIC provides families with formula as one of the benefits through the WIC program,” explained Laurel Dreger, Director of the Vilas County Health Department. “However, there are instances where the child demands more formula than is provided through WIC or a family miscalculates the usage of the monthly allocations. In those instances, FORK’s Formula Support Program will provide those children an emergency source of formula.”
The Formula Support Program provides supplemental formula to families, registered in the Woman, Infant and Children (WIC) program, who run short of formula prior to benefit renewal at the end of the month.
Families will have their child’s specific formula needs met through FORK’s relationship with local participating businesses.
The program will be administered by the Vilas County Health Department and funded by Feed Our Rural Kids.
Recipients must already have registered and qualified for WIC benefits to be eligible for this program. For more information on WIC, please contact the Vilas County Health Department. Health Officer, Laurel Dreger 715-479-3658
