With the COVID-19 pandemic, MDHHS said food pantry distributors are taking extra precautions to keep customers and volunteers safe.

Volunteers are required to wear masks and gloves, clean their hands with hand sanitizer, and sanitize distribution buildings throughout the day.

Customers don’t have to leave their vehicle to received food, MDHHS said.

Instead, customers are asked to open their trunk and volunteers will load up the vehicle with food.

MDHHS has provided the Flint mobile food pantries since Feb. 2016 in partnership with the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan in Flint.
