ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Four more Ann Arbor restaurants have stepped up to offer meals for the Ann Arbor community during the current shutdown.

Joining an ever-growing list, Miss Kim, Detroit Street Filling Station, Hutkay Fusion and Fresh Forage are offering free meals for different community members.

Below are the specifics for each eatery.

Detroit Street Filling Station

300 Detroit Street

To help displaced service industry and Kerrytown shop works, the Ann Arbor vegan go-to restaurant is offering free meals to those who need them.

Unemployed service industry workers can call 734-224-8262 and ask for the unemployed service worker discount, which will cover 100 percent of costs.

This community aid is made possible through customer gift card purchases and delivery of the meals is possible if necessary.
