Why aren’t more people using WIC?

As a young mother of a child who struggled to gain weight, Jasmine Jurado said doctors believed she was negligent.

She wasn’t, but she needed help.

It was then that Jurado, then 18, contacted the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children. More commonly known as WIC, the program provides at-risk low-income pregnant women, postpartum people, infants and children up to 5 years of age with food, nutrition education, breastfeeding and health care referrals.
