SAN ANGELO — The City of San Angelo’s Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program will continue to operate despite the federal government shutdown, according to the COSA Public Information Office.

WIC is a federally funded nutrition program that helps pregnant women, new mothers, infants and children under 5 eat well, learn about nutrition and stay healthy. Should the continuation of the federal government shutdown threaten WIC operations, clients will be given advance notice of the impact, a release from the City said.

San Angelo’s WIC program operates from 7 a.m.-noon and from 1 p.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and by appointment from 8 a.m.-noon on the first Saturday of each month. Its offices are located on the first floor of the Community Development Building, 52 W. College Ave., adjacent to City Hall.

Additionally, the WIC program operates satellite locations at Goodfellow Air Force Base and in Ballinger and Coleman. All offices will be closed on Tuesday, Jan. 1, for New Year’s Day.
