The Public Health department says this will be the second year the County participates in the California department of Public Health Program. The Board approved the agreement and certifications for the program in the amount of $580,495. This will be the first year a sub-agreement is signed with the Imperial Valley Food Bank in the amount of $221,700. The sub-agreement will allow Public Health to meet the objectives of the program. Those are not only to educate the target group on the benefits of a nutritional diet, but also make nutritional foods available.
