any Illinois WIC moms in here?
I'm a journalism major at Columbia College of Chicago, and I'm working on a paper for one of my classes about the WIC program. I've gotten a lot of official interviews, people from the state and federal office, plus a Northwestern nutritionist, but I'd love to be able to talk to someone who is actually using the program. I can't think how to get in touch with someone without going to the department of health and human services and bugging the people who are waiting to be seen, but I don't want to do that because this is not meant to be a hostile interview. I'm just looking for a good perspective. I do need someone from Illinois, though. The paper is on Illinois programs, such as the Farmer's Market program, so I need people who either have used or are eligible to use those programs. If you're interested, please email me at jlpearce at gmail dot com. This story might be published, if it's good enough. Thanks! *Please let me know if this post is inappropriate, and I'll delete it.*
