Updates to Chester County WIC

Beginning June 5th, the Chester County WIC program transitioned alongside the Chester County Health Department into the “yellow” phase of the Governor’s reopening plan. This means that WIC staff have returned to a full-time operating schedule Monday through Friday. However, for the protection of staff and participants alike, WIC will continue to operate on a limited-contact basis with appointments conducted via phone call only and food benefits loaded via curbside pick-up. Participants with scheduled WIC appointments will receive a phone call from WIC staff 1-3 business days before their appointment to speak with a nutritionist and will be scheduled a time to come to their clinic for curbside pick-up afterwards. WIC is NOT able to service any walk-ins at this time. WIC has recently been approved to begin offering curbside pick-up services at our satellite clinic locations in Spring City and Phoenixville in July and will be offering curbside services at our Oxford satellite clinic as soon as we are approved to do so.

Any new applicants to the WIC program should call their local WIC clinic or complete a pre-application online at https://www.pawic.com/OnlineApplication.aspx (www.pawic.com then click “Get Started Online!”). Any current WIC participants who need an appointment should be directed to call their local WIC clinic. When calling the WIC clinic, please encourage participants to leave a message and WIC staff will return their call ASAP. Due to our current reliance on communications via phone, please encourage WIC participants to update their local clinic with any changes to their phone number so that they may be contacted.
