What do you find most exciting about working on the WIC team at Open Door?
Our team is an outstanding, dedicated group of professionals that truly care about the well-being of the people we serve. I am inspired by both my colleagues and WIC participants every day, and I love being a part of a program that does so much to help individuals and families.
Can you share something about the WIC program that people in the community might not know?
The WIC program partners with Farmer’s Markets to give WIC participants access to fresh fruits and vegetables. This greatly benefits families and farmers alike! If you currently receive WIC benefits and would like to learn more, please ask one of our team members- we’re happy to help!
If you could only give one piece of advice about nutrition to the general community, what would it be?
Seek out nutrition advice from trusted professionals, such as Qualified WIC Nutritionists and Registered Dietitians. Nutrition professionals are highly trained and have experience giving recommendations based on the specific needs of each individual.
