Thanks to Russ Duke, Dir of Central District Health, for meeting with me today. I now have a much better understanding of the District's funding mechanisms and contractual relationships with Health and Welfare and DEQ for the services they provide. If only we could get the good parts of WIC and SNAP programs (Cards from SNAP and types of food purchase limits from WIC, both run by the Federal Dept. of Ag) we would end up with a very trackable program that would help get people healthier and ensure proper food is being purchased with the SNAP cards. (SNAP = Foodstamps)
