“During this pandemic, families who rely on WIC are increasingly at risk for food insecurity as grocery store shelves empty because they lack ‘WIC’ approved nutritional food.

I will continue working to support Americans during this difficult time and keep fighting to secure economic, health, and food security for our most vulnerable families.”
