For the month of April we’ve been sharing stories from FamilyWorks’ participants, volunteers and staff members. On Tuesday we got to hear from Shaneika, a parent who has utilized our WIC program, and today we get to hear from our WIC Nutritionist, Pat Prentice. If you don’t know, WIC is the “Federal Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children.” Every Thursday Pat facilitates the WIC program here at FamilyWorks, helping pregnant women, new mothers, and children under 5 years of age eat well, learn about nutrition and stay healthy. Through WIC families can receive health screenings, nutrition and health education, information and support for breastfeeding, and more.
In her video Pat tells us why it’s important to her to be able to facilitate the WIC program here at FamilyWorks.
