Ann Arbor’s Community High School now offers students a school cafeteria called Community Cafe which is located in the school’s lower level in the room formerly used by the Jazz Band. The Ann Arbor School District’s new wellness coordinator, Angela Demetriou, assessing school lunchrooms across the District, realized that Community didn’t even have a lunchroom. She says all students will now have healthy options that will save them money compared to the cost of a meal at businesses in the adjoining Kerrytown area. “We really are striving towards equity and making things better for the kids,” she said, noting that students can now sit down and eat together. The new cafeteria will offer students a varied menu of made-to-order salads, sandwiches, pizza, and sushi bowls.
