Illinois Participant Testimonial 2018

“WIC helps supply my family with healthy foods and connects us to vaccination services my family needs. As a foster parent, those first days of a new placement are always hard emotionally and financially, but with WIC I was able to make sure my children were given healthy foods right away without worrying about the cost, which allowed me to focus on their emotional needs. Also, my premature baby has to be on a special formula for the first year and with WIC, the financial burden of this more expensive, specialized formula has been lifted. We’ve been going to WIC at the health department and the staff there is always kind and helpful. I’ll keep working with the staff because they do what they can to make life a little less hectic for us! Thanks, WIC!” — WIC Participant, Illinois
