WIC Could Be Lost During Goverment Shut Down

Two hundred thousand people may lose their WIC welfare in Michigan because of the government shutdown.

It's a food subsidy that helps mothers with young children up to five years old pay for food and other essentials.

The state Health Department passes this money through from the federal govenrment and says there is enough only for another month.
