Farmington Hills restaurant launches ‘Frontline Meal Fund’

On Wednesday, thanks to a donor, The Ideal Bite Community Kitchen in Farmington Hills delivered food to more than 200 workers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

With cases rising – more than 1,150 across Farmington and Farmington Hills over the past 30 days – owners Matt Lange and Amy Jean Thompson said they’ve talked with customers who want to help.

“We’ve been thinking, and have a way you can not only help us to stay open with work, but also help these frontline workers,” the couple wrote in a social media post.
