Tell Your Story

How has WIC impacted you or someone you know? Congress must approve federal funding for WIC every five years, so we need to continue telling the stories of how WIC Works! Moms & dads, babies & growing children, extended families & communities, our businesses & economy ALL benefit from WIC! As a WIC participant, employee, or member of the wider community, we invite you to get involved and tell your story, especially through video.
