If the government remains shut down, in the coming days future funding for the Women, Infants, and Children program could be up in the air.
This is adding undue stress on hundreds of families in Tulsa.
Jessica Kosko cradles her 1-year-old son Jacory in her arms.
This little guy knows that when his mother comes here to WIC, he will get the milk, eggs and other nutritious foods that he needs. But today is different.
"No one told me about the WIC shutting down. I really didn't have any idea about that until today," said Kosko.
Like many other moms just now hearing the news, Kosko is trying to wrap her head around the fact that she may not be able to feed her young children the types of food she would like.
Depending on what the government does, WIC will no longer be issuing food vouchers after Nov. 1.
"It's a big shock. I'm still thinking about it and Nov. 1, I just didn't know it was going to be so soon," said Kosko.
WIC provides things like formula, milk and food to thousands of families living in Oklahoma.
"Next week we've been advised that we will have to start printing only for high-risk clients," said Stacy Walker, WIC.
If she can no longer cash her WIC vouchers, Kosko says she will be forced to get a second job.
This will put an added strain on family members who already watch her four young children.
It's not just her family feeling the pinch.
"We are crossing our fingers and hoping this doesn't happen but potentially we will be at home furloughed like all the other government employees out there," said Walker.
