Behind the new picture of food insecurity in Detroit, and those fighting it

When the lockdown first began, Detroit Public School Community District (DPSCD) alleviated food insecurity by providing 18,000 meals and learning packets weekly to children as well as any Detroiter in need. Now students who are taking classes virtually can still receive meals in person. Anyone else in Detroit can also come by Monday to Thursday to pick up food to go. Food banks and pantries are also pivoting to meet the needs of the community during the pandemic.
