Our latest policy brief highlights the importance of WIC for mothers and children.

WIC serves 53% of all infants and 25% of all pregnant women in the United States.  Any cuts to the WIC program will mean that many children will not receive the adequate nutrition they need at a critical time resulting in lasting, life-long consequences on their physical, mental, and social development.
