A story about A Small Hand diaper bank in Edinburg in the June 23 paper, should have included that the federal supplemental nutrition program Women’s Infants and Children provides four weeks’ worth of food each month over a three-month period for program participants. Participants can pick up their three-month benefits at one time except in special instances that require participants to receive food every four weeks. The office at the Frederick-Winchester Health Department provides more than $40 a month to each area participant. The minimum amount of Similac Expert Care Alimentum hypo-allergenic baby formula WIC can give a participant is six cans a month.
