Happy Father’s day!

WIC recognizes the important role that fathers, grandfathers, stepfathers, and other guardians play in caring for kids. Dads are a source of so much selfless love, unconditional support, and timeless wisdom for the WIC family.

Despite the WIC name, fathers, grandfathers, stepfathers, father figures, and other guardians have always been a part of the WIC family. WIC celebrates and appreciates the nurturers and caregivers, mothers, fathers, grandparents, and guardians of our children.

Dad’s Chat April 2021

Calling all WIC Men and Dads! PHFE WIC is proud to have hosted its first virtual Dad’s chat event on April 22, 2021. Fathers from California to Texas joined and discussed the challenges they have experienced as father during the COVID pandemic. Challenges discussed ranged from social struggles to comfort food struggle. Fathers shared their approach for the day-to-day challenges that arouse from the pandemic. The event provided the positive reinforcement that fathers are not alone and through power of communication, can overcome the daily obstacles.
