Eat & Be Well is a one-day occasion celebrating the Thanksgiving season by supporting the underserved of San Bernardino County. Through collaboration between public agencies, businesses, volunteer groups, and the people of our community, Eat & Be Well provides those in need with a traditional Thanksgiving meal and health resources.
