Fast, fresh, local

A new, fresh restaurant has opened in the former Giardino’s space on Jackson Road in Ann Arbor. Fresh Forage brings a fast casual, farm-to-table concept to life with a menu packed full of ingredients sourced from family and local farms and sustainably foraged from the Michigan’s woods. Their dynamic seasonal menu will evolve with a fresh, local, fast, and healthy food focus.

Community Daycare (CDC) has opened a second preschool campus, serving ages 2 ½ to 5 years, on Ann Arbor’s southwest side. The new location, over 40 acres with expansive green space for children to explore, as well as walking trails, hills and a pond, is known as CDC-Forest and will be led by veteran teacher and CDC alum, Elizabeth Meza. Established in 1972, CDC uses the High-Scope curriculum with a commitment that all families can access their program. Over the last five years, CDC has made over $100,000 in tuition assistance available to Ann Arbor-area families.
