With 2013 deliveries right around the corner, it is very important for recipients to recertify their commodity card with their local county offices prior to the first pick-up date.
Recertification date starts Jan. 2.
If you think you or someone you know qualifies for this program, please contact the UCHRA office in your county for more information.
