Soy Beverage Issuance

Over the last several months, you should have noticed that "Half Gallon Soymilk Beverage (WIC Approved)" is the main option for issuing soymilk to participants. You should also notice that "Quarts Pacific Natural Foods Ultra Soy Beverage"is still an option for selection. To clarify, the "Half Gallon Soymilk Beverage (WIC Approved)" refers to the refrigerated half-gallon options of Silk, 8th Continent and Lucerne, which they may choose from at the store. The Pacific Soy may not be substituted for the half-gallon standard soy beverage option at the store. If Pacific Ultra Soy is purchased, there is a good chance the check will be rejected. If the participant wants the Pacific, they will need to choose that in the clinic and have it printed on their checks. Let Kate or Chris know if you have any questions.
