Fall ushers in mobile food pantry’s free harvest distribution
Shares

Fall might bring weather changes, but it won’t change the neighborhood rounds made by one of Flint’s most reliable sources of fresh, healthy groceries. Supported by the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan in Flint and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, the mobile food pantry will continue distributing goods rich in calcium, vitamin C and iron, all of which help minimize lead absorption.

Funded with about $300 million in state taxpayer funds to support residents, many of whom have been impacted by lead consumption during the city’s water emergency, the pantry provides goods free of cost on a first-come, first-served basis. Tuna, baked beans, mandarin oranges, cereal, tomatoes and more shelf-stable goods are available, along with produce including apples, eggplant, peppers, onions, sweet corn, squash, carrots and potatoes.

Remaining October dates and locations include:

Information about additional food distribution dates will be announced as they are scheduled. For more information, visit the Food Bank website at www.FBEM.org or call 810-239-4441
