North Carolina Grocer Testimonial 2017

“This is one of the most beneficial programs that the state offers. The WIC program encourages and teaches healthy eating habits for our children at a young age and stays with them through adulthood¬†where they can pass it on to their children. With our country’s increasing obesity rate with adults and children its very important that there is a program out there that not only teaches us how to eat correctly, but only allows us to buy healthy food items. And when we teach our children healthy eating habits it will help with our obesity rate, which will help with doctor visits and the fight against heart disease, and that will save our country more money by not having to pay out as much for assistance on medical.”¬†— WIC Grocer, North Carolina
