Home / Public Health in Practice: Fort Liberty Military Families Benefit From New WIC Office on Base (UNC Gillings School News)


The UNC, Cumberland County and Fort Liberty teams received a joint grant for $204,000 from the national Food Research & Action Center to expand their focus on WIC outreach in the Fort Liberty community. With this funding, they will hire a full-time WIC outreach coordinator, develop a social marketing campaign to combat stigma around accessing WIC benefits, and explore new virtual and electronic systems that may reduce barriers to using WIC programs.”
