It’s that time of year, Door County cherries are in season! There are 2 different styles of cherries in Door County, sweet and tart. Both cherries have their own unique health benefits. Sweet cherries are great for eating and tart cherries are great for baking, canning, drying, and freezing (although you can eat them too if you like to pucker!) Sweet cherries are high in Vitamin C and Potassium. Tart cherries are full of antioxidants and is linked to lowering inflammation, boosting immunity, and improving sleep. Both cherries are full of nutrients and provide a great snack or treat!

This is a great reminder. On a side note, we will never ask you for your PIN number.

Hey WIC participants! We recently learned that there have been phishing and scam attempts targeting WIC participants in South Carolina. This particular phishing attempt instructs WIC participants to mail in their WIC cards with their PIN to reload benefits. PLEASE DON’T DO THIS. WIC doesn’t need WIC cards or PIN numbers to load benefits.

If you have questions about this, please contact your local WIC clinic.
