Flint families can get nutritious food that can limit the effects of lead exposure during mobile food pantry hours set for January at locations throughout Flint.

The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan in Flint and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services are announcing the upcoming schedule for mobile food pantry stops to distribute foods rich in calcium, vitamin C and iron.

Each family will receive nutritional food such as tuna, baked beans, cereal and fresh items such as potatoes and carrots.

The program began in February as part of Gov. Rick Snyder's $28 million supplemental budget request for Flint and is continuing with state funding in the fiscal year 2017 budget.

Flint families have received more than 2 million pounds of food through the project.
