So far, that&rsquo;s <u>not </u>the case in Tulsa, but there is concern about what may happen here if the shutdown continues much longer. Maggie <u>Hoey</u> is with the Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. She says there&rsquo;s worry about the WIC&hellip;Women, Infants, and Children&rsquo;s program. If it runs out of funds, the Food Bank may have to pick up the slack, tightening up supplies.
