Food distribution center will be created using stimulus funds

A food distribution center will be established by the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency with $16.1 million in stimulus funds, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced Tuesday.

The center will link food demand to supply and increase access to healthy foods, especially in high-need areas, Schwarzenegger said.

Funding for the center is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service’s Communities Putting Prevention to Work initiative, a comprehensive prevention and wellness initiative funded under the Recovery Act.
