About this grant

The breadth and depth of the impact the coronavirus will have on the well-being of Flint and Genesee County is still evolving, but one of the most crucial needs is for the community’s most vulnerable residents to have adequate food during the peak of the outbreak. Through this grant, the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan will purchase food that will be delivered to porches or picked up at drive-through locations throughout Flint and Genesee County in order to meet that need.
