WIC Food Program To Continue For 4-5 Weeks

Posted: Updated:

LANSING (AP) -- The State of Michigan says it can continue providing healthy food for low- to moderate-income pregnant women and children for about a month. 

The state Department of Community Health says "spend forward" money and reallocating funds will sustain the WIC program for 4-5 weeks. 

The Women, Infants, and Children, or WIC, program provides food and baby formula to women and children up to age 5. 

DOCH says more than half the babies born in Michigan are enrolled in the WIC program.
