WIC Vendor Advisory Council (WVAC):

The Connecticut Department of Public Health WIC Program established a WIC Vendor Advisory Council in January 2007. This group serves as a communication forum between WIC authorized retail stores, professional trade organizations, food distributors, WIC local agencies and the State WIC Office. The input from this Council assists the WIC Program in developing effective policies and procedures for vendors based on current and future Federal and State Regulations.

As respected members of the WIC vendor community, we are seeking additional vendors and participants to join this Council where your perspectives, expertise and suggestions will be valued. Meetings are held quarterly, typically in Newington, Connecticut. Agenda items are always welcome and can be emailed at any time.
