CLINTON, Miss. (WLBT) - A new, colorful YMCA just debuted in Clinton.
Metro YMCAs of Mississippi and UnitedHealthcare unveiled a mobile food pantry this week to provide healthy options in hard-to-reach areas that face barriers to access and transportation.
During the school year, the pantry is open Monday through Friday from 4 - 5 p.m.
Each summer, the pantry will hopscotch around the Jackson metro during lunch hour.
A $150,000 UnitedHealthcare grant made the pantry possible.
