  • I found this on http://www.doh.wa.gov/cfh/wic/materials/clinic/digin.pdf, at least it pertains to Washington state WIC


    How is WIC Funded?
    The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the state of Washington, and local monies fund WIC.
    Partnerships have been developed between the Washington State Department of Health and local communities to provide WIC services to people who qualify to receive WIC services. Local funding is needed because state and federal funds do not fully pay for the operation of WIC.

  • I thought that it was Food Stamps that got money from working people?
