No More WIC Services In Century

July 1, 2013

Century area residents must travel Molino or another location in order to receive WIC services.

WIC — the Federal Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children — provides vouchers for free nutritional food to use at local grocery stores as well as nutrition and breastfeeding counseling for women, infants and children under 5 years old.

The Century WIC site at 511 Church Street closed at the end of June. Beginning today, the Molino site will be the nearest Escambia County location where former Century clients can receive WIC services. The Molino site is open all day on Mondays and Thursdays, and on Friday mornings. Persons needing WIC services should call (850) 595-6670.

WIC services will be available to Century area clients at any WIC location in Escambia County (FL) or Santa Rosa County, including Jay.
