Misoc, Oro bag nutrition council’s top regional awards

THE National Nutrition Council in Region 10 has announced its list of “Green Banner” awardees that have been adjudged for their “very satisfactory performance” in the implementation of the nutrition program in northern Mindanao.

The NNC’s Regional Green Banner 2017 awardees are Misamis Occidental for the provincial level, Cagayan de Oro for the city level, and Tudela, Misamis Occidental for the municipal level.

Recipients of the NNC’s Provincial Green Banner awards are Maramag, Bukidnon; Guinsiliban, Camiguin; and Tudela, Misamis Occidental.
