Positive signs of Flint’s resurgence are undeniable. Palpable energy and gritty determination are in evidence at every groundbreaking ceremony, neighborhood block club meeting, community activity and event we cover.
While Flint still faces many struggles, it is certainly on the road to recovery. From its outstanding medical centers, colleges and universities, charitable, cultural and faith-based institutions to its welcoming cafés, shops and restaurants, the city is full of great people and places and the kind of gritty determination capable of capturing positive national headlines.
Ultimately, Flint will come to be known more for its accomplishments than its challenges, and we’re proud to be a part of its comeback story.
Health and healing are at the center of many city initiatives. We are pleased to join the Michigan Fitness Foundation and community partners in hosting a major event to elevate the importance nutrition plays in feeding Flint’s recovery efforts.
“Savor the Flavor of Flint” will be held on January 27, 2018. The event will bring together residents, businesses, churches and community organizations in a community-wide good food event that promotes the importance of Flint’s emerging food culture and delicious, healthy eating through favorite family recipes and local cooks.
There are a lot of great stories to tell.
This month, we’re inviting our readers to take an inside look at the city’s people-powered resurgence through our Keeping the Faith and Chef’s Best series. You’ll see how the many small acts of Flint’s faith-based and small-business communities collectively support the city’s resurgence.
Through these series and our Savor the Flavor of Flint event we’ll introduce you to the people who are elevating Flint’s well-being and driving its comeback story.
