While many service programs are currently experiencing funding shortages and budget cuts, one veteran public health program is turning 40 with room to grow. The Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children, more commonly known as WIC, is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.

In Wenatchee and Chelan, the state-funded WIC program is managed by Columbia Valley Community Health (CVCH) and serves both working and unemployed families. More than just a supplement food assistance program, WIC provides nutrition education, breastfeeding promotion and support and health care referrals.
