Helping Those in Need Eat Healthy

The County's Health and Human Services Agency teamed up with several community partners to put on a community food distribution event for needy families in Escondido.

HHSA used the opportunity to help educate the public about healthy eating and provide convenient access to social services, including CalFresh (formerly known as food stamps).

By the end of the event, food and services had been provided to more than 1,500 individuals.
