SUBJECT 1: WIC Outreach – COVID-19 Response. This is to let local agencies know of the recent updates in relation to WIC Outreach. First, the WIC Outreach - COVID-19 Response webpage is updated with 3 new social media posts on the approved food substitutions. The milk and infant fruits and vegetables social media posts will be added the week of April 20th. Second, the WIC homepage has a new look to make it easier for participants to locate the COVID-19 Information for WIC Families page and the Welcome to WIC video. Third, the COVID-19 Information for WIC Families page is updated with the list of approved food substitutions. Finally, a WIC banner has been added to the DHSS homepage to inform citizens that WIC is open. Please feel free to reach out to Anne Strope at anne.strope@health.mo.gov if you have any suggestions, comments, or questions about how we can tackle outreach together!

SUBJECT 2: Welcome to eWIC Video – Spanish Version. There is now a Spanish version of the Welcome to eWIC video! It is posted on the website Families eWIC page under the Informational Materials tab. Please let Anne Strope at anne.strope@health.mo.gov know if you need a DVD copy of the Spanish or English version.

SUBJECT 3: Update on Microcuvette Order. Missouri WIC has requested the microcuvette orders be shipped to the local agencies. Some local agencies began receiving shipments on Friday, April 17th. Once the order is received, please verify that the number of microcuvettes received matches the number listed on the packing slip.

If the number of microcuvettes in the package is the same as the packing slip, sign and date the packing slip. Please fax the signed packing slip to WIC Operations at 573-526-1470 or scan and email the signed packing slip to WICOperations@health.mo.gov within one week of receiving the shipment. Confirmation on the packing slip is required for the state agency to pay for the microcuvettes.

If the number of microcuvettes received is different from the packing slip, please call Jason Seehusen at 573-526-6661.

If you are unable to locate your packing slip, please send an email stating how many boxes you received and the date you received the shipment to WICOperations@health.mo.gov

Thank you for your prompt cooperation.
