It's actually WIC. It's another program that provides food, but not to the extent of the Lone Star Card. WIC Program Info

Yes, I know. Women, Infants, and Children. I was poking fun, "wick" just amused me.

I thought it was funny, too... but only because I had never heard of WIC until I started teaching at my current school and my students would tell me their moms got the chips for the class party and some soda for home with their Lone Star Card and then she used WIC to get milk and then ... and I didn't know what WIC was so had to ask one of the other teachers. I also used to think food stamps/Lone Star were only for nutritious foods, but I guess that is not the case.

This is off topic but they should start putting some guidelines on the Lone Star card. Can't buy cheetos and junk like that.
