RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Moms who get money from the federally funded WIC program could soon be able to buy more with their benefits.
WIC stands for Women, Infants and Children. Right now, it gives low-income mothers government dollars to buy healthy food for their families.
Jennifer Waldrop relied on WIC when she was pregnant.
“WIC is pretty important to me,” she said. “It helps me decide what foods are nutritionally good to eat right now for my sons well being.”
