You should call them because I think ifyou go 4 or 5 months with out a wic appt. they can cut you off. I know it probly won't be that long by the tim eyou go back but they have to give you WIC

Call them and ask if you can just have check pickups until then. When was the last time you were certified? I think they only have to do that every 6 months, so if you don't need to bring in your kid(s) or their medical coupons/proof of income, then you can just do check pickups. At least that's how it is here. Sometimes just going in will get them to do this also. Depending on where you live, there are frequently no shows  to appointments.

Good luck! Just keep bugging them until they give you checks!

if you have the wic card instead of the paper checks like we have in MI,then you should beable to ask them to reload your card with out an appointment,i had to do that this winter because my office was to far anf i coulnd get a ride.also they should be able to give you a list of other wic offices.also if you run out of formula before you can get your wic again they usualy have lots of cans at the dr office they will give if you need it and if you go to a local hospital and tell them you have no formula they will help too.
