Edible Flint supports Flint residents in growing and accessing healthy food in order to reconnect with the land and each other. edible flint is a network of organizations that work together to promote the mission. edible flint holds an annual meeting for our participants to affirm the mission, share our progress from the prior year and to select community members to serve on the Leadership Board of the organization. The meeting is open to all and is usually held the last week of March.
