Indiana WIC encouraged users to buy what they think they will need for the weekend by Thursday night. If WIC items must be purchased over the weekend, SNAP benefits can be used. WIC-approved retailers will still be open, but they will not be able to accept WIC payments.
Any WIC users facing food insecurity this or any weekend can call 211 or use the Community Compass app or website to locate an open food distribution site nearby. Food banks and pantries do not typically stock large amounts of formula or baby food, two items that WIC specifically covers, but emergency food assistance can help free up other household resources to purchase WIC items needed during the outage.
Previously scheduled weekend distributions are occurring throughout our network of food banks. Check social media posts for changes, information accurate as of 5:00 pm ET, August 24, 2022.
