Ok I'll explain myself. I'm going camping with my mom which is free for me except im trying to pitch in as much as possible. I get tons of beans from WIC but my mom only wants them if they're organic. Is that ok with you? Baby G?

I agree with the above comments. Wic only allows certain items and a certain amount of the item to be bought. There is no cash value. Wic allows $10 of fruits/veggies to be bought so who know if that is what she planned to buy.

Don't feel bad about WIC it's very helpful to us who appreciate it. And it's honestly not very much food. But WIC or good stamps Is nothing to be ashamed of


Don't feel bad your on wic! We were on wic and it help out a ton! Now we are wic free it really helped us in our time of need!!! No shame at all I boldly said I was using wic at the grocery store lol how else am I suppose to feed my daughter.

Omg I did not know that they except WIC! And I agree that was very ignorant. It has nothing to do with being able to afford shopping at trader joes....they give you specific items and an amount to stay under. It can be very helpful to families who can barley afford groceries.

Brianna B asks Question!! So there has been issues with my MIL. She all of a sudden doesn't Want to watch the kids much anymore which leaves me scrambling the day before to find someone. She will text me Sunday And say she can't Do this week. My mom just said she is quitting her job to help me. I know she won't Accept It, but what would be a reasonable amount to offer her each week for this? I feel bad and want to at least offer. She will only be watching them 3 days a week for at least 8-10hrs a day.
