This grant to the Genesee Chamber Foundation will provide funds to establish the Flint Grocer Improvement Program. The focus of the program will be to address blight and the lack of access to healthy, affordable food to distressed and underprivileged residents of north Flint. The belief is that by making existing grocery stores more accessible, marketable, and overall inviting, local shoppers will be attracted to healthy food options that can aid in the reduction of long-term impacts of lead exposure. The Genesee Chamber Foundation will regrant funds to qualifying grocers to make the necessary enhancements and upgrades.
