Nutrition Education and Hunger Prevention Department

The Nutrition Education and Hunger Prevention (NEHP) department is the newest department to be added to the KCAO family, formed in 2013.  The three programs that fall under the NEHP department include:

USDA Commodities

Commodities are available once per month to families/individuals throughout Kings County. In order to receive commodities you must complete an application and be within the income guideline. We currently have distribution sites located in Hanford, Kettleman City, Corcoran, Lemoore, Stratford and Avenal.
