Flint, Michigan’s struggles with lead-contaminated drinking water started in 2014 when the drinking water source for the city was changed to the Flint River. Since then, the city’s residents have grappled with the health impacts that come with drinking that water.

One of the methods Flint is using to mitigate those impacts is a cooking class for kids at the farmers market, called Flint Kids Cook.

PBS NewsHour‘s John Yang reports from Flint on the program and others like it.
