A.V. FOOD VOUCHER PROGRAM PRAISED.

Byline: Daily News

LANCASTER - A U.S. Department of Agriculture-funded supplemental food vouchers program for women, infants and children - known as WIC - has received top marks from state health officials.

The Palmdale and Lancaster WIC programs, administered by Antelope Valley Hospital, received a mark of ``no findings'' - meaning no improvements are needed - in the biannual evaluation by the California State Department of Health.

``The 25 dedicated professionals of the WIC team deserve our thanks for their hard work on behalf of AVH and for their administration of the food voucher program as well as needed nutritional education for thousands of participants in the WIC program,'' said Les Wong, Antelope Valley Hospital chief executive officer.

The program, which serves more than 12,000 Antelope Valley residents monthly, was one of two programs in California to receive a ``no findings'' evaluation.

State health officials commended the Antelope Valley program for its campaign promoting breast-feeding, use of food models for portion size and the clinic staff.

The evaluations also commended program director Maureen Simanski and coordinator Pamela Stanley.

``We provide a meaningful service to the community, and it's also a great place to work,'' Stanley said.
