As COVID-19 continues to spread, thousands of schools across the United States have shut their doors as part of the fight to “flatten the curve” of transmission. These closures have not only disrupted the routines of millions of students, but also sparked concerns that children who rely on the school system for breakfast and lunch will go without meals. To help stimulate the minds and fill the bellies of students from families in need, a Detroit gallery and restaurant have teamed up to provide kids with free dinners—and a special coloring book filled with sketches by renowned artists.

As Mark Kurlyandchik reports for the Detroit Free Press, the initiative is a collaboration between the Library Street Collective, a contemporary fine art gallery, and Standby, a restaurant and bar… Local nonprofits Forgotten Harvest and the Downtown Boxing Gym will distribute the food.
