Nutrition Program Overview of
Programs, Campaigns, Projects,
and Services

The Nutrition Program operates as an integral component of the Department of
Public Health by countering poor nutrition, physical inactivity, and obesity through the delivery of:
  • direct nutrition and physical activity education
  • indirect, long-term environmental and policy change
The program aims to increase access and availability of fruits and vegetables, physical activity and nutrition assistance programs for recipients of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly the Food Stamp Program) and other low-income San Bernardino County residents.

Everyone needs access to health promoting food and physical activity at work, home,
and in their communities. It is vital for our community health and for our economy.

The Nutrition Program envisions all people with access to a variety of competitively priced
nutritious food, accurate nutrition information, and communities that foster health,
balanced nutrition and physical activity.

Our mission is to promote healthy eating and physical activity by:
  • Forming alliances with the community, schools, public and private agencies, local print and broadcast media, and businesses.
  • Empowering families and individuals to choose and prepare nutritious foods and to be physically active.
  • Providing referrals to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly the Food Stamp Program) and raising community awareness about food security.
