In the face of declining WIC caseloads, WIC agencies and other stakeholders are in search of effective methods for keeping participants on the program longer. Research shows that “pain points” in the WIC shopping experience have contributed to WIC participants dropping out of the program or choosing not to participate in the first place. It is therefore imperative that we in the WIC community develop effective solutions to WIC shopping challenges.
This preconference summit will focus on developing practical constructive next steps to improve the WIC shopping experience by fostering a collaborative dialogue between members of the WIC and retail communities. WIC state and local agency staff, EBT vendors, manufacturers, and WIC-authorized vendor representatives are invited to participate. The summit will be professionally-facilitated and will include panels, facilitated breakout meetings, and workshops.
