“WIC” to run thru October 31
South Carolina DHEC has announced a contingency plan to maintain through October 31 the nutritional service “WIC”—the Women, Infant and Children Program. More than 120,000 low-income South Carolina families are served by the program. “This (DHEC) staff has worked with me for the past 18 months to cut down on expenses and become more efficient. The savings we have realized are being reinvested in the citizens of South Carolina by keeping important protections in place while the federal government sorts things out,” said Director Catherine Templeton.
