The Department of Health on Monday announced that New Mexico families who receive Women, Infant and Children (WIC) benefits may now shop online.
“Allowing WIC households to purchase WIC-eligible foods online will improve food access and relieve some of the stress New Mexicans face related to COVID-19,” said WIC Director Sarah Flores-Sievers.
The new online shopping platform rolls out at three store locations beginning Monday, March 8th, 2021. These three stores are:
- S&Sin Clovis
- Bullocksin Truth or Consequences
- La Finca Meat Market #2in Las Cruces
Another ten stores will be added within the next two to four weeks with more stores following across the state.
