With thanks to an anonymous donor, our club has donated $5,000 to the "WIC "N" PICK" program which is a community outreach program guiding families in our area toward enjoying the benefits of better nutrition.  Today, Krista Berger visited with us to provide information about the program's acceptance and successes.  WIC is the nation's most successful and cost effective public health nutrition program.  WIC approved foods provide essential vitamins and minerals to support growth.  Participation in the program has not only taught recipients about better nutrition but participants have bonded and are now forming small support groups that help with managing many daily activities to improve quality of life.  Visit the program's website https://essexcountyny.gov/Health/wic/ to see the complete range of services that are offered.  Combating food insecurity is one of the major themes for our club in the coming months.  Shown L to R are Donations Chair Peter Beatty, Krista, Int'l Services Committe Chair Chandler Ralph and Club President Kate Thompson.
