Another job excellently done! The country’s cream of the crop local government units and nutrition workers will gather together at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) on 13 December during the 2016 National Nutrition Awarding Ceremony. About 500 guests are expected to participate in this year’s much-awaited recognition rites.
Topping the list of winners across the five different award categories are the cities of Cauayan in Isabela (Region 2), Mandaluyong (NCR), and Valencia City in Bukidnon (Region 10), which will be conferred the Nutrition Honor Award (NHA). The NHA is the highest distinction in nutrition conferred by the interagency National Nutrition Council for LGUs able to sustain improvement in the nutritional status of their constituents for 6 consecutive years. NHA awardees each receive a trophy and cash incentive of P1,000,000.
