  community member   < less

In the face of shortages of testing materials and laboratory testing capacity, Detroit Street Filling Station - a vegan restaurant in Ann Arbor, Michigan - has decided to take matters into their own hands. This Thursday they will hold a bake sale to raise funds for local coronavirus testing efforts.

"The government has failed to devote the necessary resources to testing - the best method we have to fight this pandemic," said Phillis Engelbert, owner of Detroit Street Filling Station. "Therefore we are stepping up to raise funds through a good old-fashioned bake sale."

Vegan baked goods, prepared at the restaurant's sister operation -The Lunch Room Bakery & Café - will include the following items:

• "Let Them Eat Cake" vanilla bean cake
• "Losing his Marbles" cupcakes
• "Orange Puffball" coconut macaroons
• "Rocky Road" fudge
• "Fantastic Fauci" apple hand pies
