Icon97 Black Panthers invented WIC

Comment: I've been having a discussion with someone who says the Black
Panthers created WIC (Women, Infants and Children) program. I can't find
anything to back that up. There's a page that lists WIC as a neighborhood
program by the Black Panthers on Stanford.org, but that could mean they
helped people to enroll, not that they invented it.

Comment: Did the black panthers began the WIC program (women, infants and
children) in the 1960's or have a hand in its conception.

Was there some recent piece on Rush Limbaugh or FAUX & Fiends about this, or is there a really twitchy individual who's asking about this?

Actually it's the other way around. It's a Facebook meme going around praising the Panthers and saying that they created the program.
