August welcomes food pantry’s monthly neighborhood tour

Meal time in August will be a little easier to manage with the familiar appearance of the mobile food pantry at locations throughout Flint. Nutritious foods that can protect against lead absorbtion, including cabbage, cantaloupe, cucumbers, sweet corn, peppers and zucchini, will be provided to families on a first come, first served basis during specified hours, dates and locations.

More than $300 million in funding to support residents in eating nutritiously will be used to keep distribution sites open while supplies last. Remaining August locations and dates include:
