Although the federal government shutdown has been announced, the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children, known as WIC, will remain in operation in Missouri. The Springfield-Greene County WIC program has been notified that there is sufficient funding to continue Missouri WIC operations in the event of a federal government shutdown.

The Springfield-Greene County WIC program will continue to hold appointments with participants, and authorized WIC retailers are still able to accept WIC checks until further notice.
