Stocking up on groceries this holiday season doesn’t have to be a tall or expensive task for many Flint families. Through the mobile food pantry, the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan in Flint and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services are lending a hand. A new set of neighborhood rounds by the mobile, mini-market has been announced for December, including foods rich in calcium, vitamin C and iron.
