The City of Milwaukee Health Department strongly advises everyone, regardless of vaccination status, wear a mask when indoors with people outside of their household.

“We are calling on our community to step up and mask up to keep yourselves and your loved ones safe,” said Health Commissioner Kirsten Johnson. “The most effective way to combat this surge in positive cases is through vaccination, but until vaccination rates improve, we must be willing to take simple steps such as wearing a mask to protect our community and the most vulnerable.”

Use your WIC benefits first each month so you can make the most of any other benefits!

Since WIC benefits expire at the end of the month, use them first, while holding onto other benefits like FoodShare, which will roll over if you don’t use them all.

Sometimes it can be difficult to get your little ones to try their fruits and vegetables, but it’s a lot easier when they look fun (or funny)! Try cutting your bell peppers into stars or making faces out of carrots and cucumbers – and for your older kiddos, encourage them to make their own shapes!
