  1. Track Training Name Changed: There is confusion among WIC staff about Track Training's name change to WIC Training. To lessen the confusion the training will now be referred to as WIC Basic Orientation Training. Within WIC Basic Orientation Training, there will be different levels of training dependent upon a person's job duties - Clerical, HPA, WIC Certifier, and CPA, which will be identified in the title of the training. If you have questions about the training, contact D'Anne Ward at Danne.Ward@health.mo.gov or 800-392-8209.
  2. Notification of Shipping the Missouri WIC Approved Food Lists: The Missouri WIC Approved Food Lists (English and Spanish) have been printed. On July 23rd, 2007, the warehouse will begin shipping to all local WIC providers approximately a 2-3 month supply of the English version of the WIC Approved Food List and the Spanish version to those who ordered the Spanish version from the warehouse in the last 12 months. Please order additional food lists from the warehouse as needed.

    Please visit the website for the PDF version of WIC Approved Food List (English and Spanish) and these supplemental versions: Arabic, Bosnian, Chinese, Farsi, Russian, Somali and Vietnamese. If you have questions, please contact Takako Tagami at Takako.Tagami@health.mo.gov
  3. National WIC Association (NWA)'s 2008 WIC Calenders: The State WIC office has purchased NWAs 2008 WIC Calendars (wall-size) in both English and Spanish. The calendars will be allocated based on the caseload and shipped to each local WIC provider in November 2007.
