Actualización especial sobre alimentos WIC | Texas WIC

WIC de Texas ofrecerá un nuevo aumento temporal en la cantidad de beneficios para frutas y verduras hasta finales de diciembre. Esta extensión de beneficios ofrecerá diferentes cantidades de dinero según la categoría correspondiente. Los clientes que reúnan los requisitos recibirán lo siguiente:
🧒🏼 Niños: 24 dólares cada mes
🤰🏼 Mujeres embarazadas, en el periodo de posparto y algunas lactantes: 43 dólares cada mes
🤱🏼 Mujeres que amamantan de forma exclusiva o parcial: 47 dólares cada mes

Por ejemplo, si estás embarazada y tienes dos hijos (de 1 a 5 años) que reciben WIC, recibirás 91 dólares (43 de la mamá + 24 de un hijo + 24 del otro hijo = 91 dólares) cada mes en octubre, noviembre y diciembre para comprar frutas y verduras. ¡Obtén más frutas y verduras frescas, congeladas o enlatadas para tu familia!
Si ya eres cliente de WIC, asegúrate de asistir a tu próxima cita para recibir este beneficio especial.

I'm grasping at straws here. We have three foster children who are on WIC. I was using the MyTexasWic app before we got the the two new kids.I love this app but I can't figure out how to add the other children to it. I called the WIC office but they were of no help. Anyone have any ideas?
I would like to thank Diane Zuniga and team members for there help. I would recommend this facility. They were very helpful. Very attentive.
Long out
