Realizing that stories and testimonials are a powerful advocacy tool, the National WIC Association partnered with local and state WIC agencies across the country to create the WIC Voices Project. Photo and video testimonials were shaped and developed to highlight the WIC program’s impact on communities across the country.

WIC is an asset to communities across the United States, serving all fifty states, Native American Indian tribes, and U.S. territories.
