The supplemental nutrition program serves the need of low-income families and part of WIC's mission is to encourage pregnant and new moms to breastfeed.

Food and gifts were also given out.

Many of the gifts were damaged by flooding three weeks ago, but the community came together with donations to help the show go on.
