1. Sushi lovers, Thai and Burmese-inspired dishes, will love a new partnership that Meijer has with a Michigan-based restaurant.
Amazing Myanmar Cuisine is on 28th Street in Kentwood and now 10 of its most popular menu items will be available for purchase from this Saturday at Bridge Street Market on Seward Avenue in Grand Rapids.
This month, you can also find them in the Cascade and Kalamazoo Meijer stores.
It is important to note that it was all made possible by the Grand Rapids Asian-Pacific Foundation.
2. It may be freezing out, but there is no reason to stop shopping for fresh, healthy and locally grown food.
At the indoor winter market, people are invited to shop for fresh produce and specialty foods from over 25 regular Holland Farmers Market vendors, all the while staying warm and cozy inside the Holland Civic Center Place.
The indoor winter market begins on Saturday, January 15 and runs from 6 p.m. 9 to 13 and continues the first and third Saturdays in February, March and April.

3. Some restrictions are also being introduced at the Kent District Library.
KDL pauses personal, indoor programs at all of their locations.
This policy remains in force until further notice.
Officials hope programs can resume in March.
Library locations remain open with all other services available.
4. Mary Free Bed has been awarded a $ 10,000 grant for her music therapy program.
The money was awarded by the National Endowment for the Arts, and Mary Free Bed is one of more than 100 organizations across the country that have received the grant.
The rehabilitation center first started its music therapy program in 2018, and the lone full-time therapist, Peter Muszkiewicz, has worked with hundreds of patients.
Mary Free Bed hopes to be able to use the money to add yet another part-time music therapist to meet the demand.
** It was previously reported that Mary Free Bed received a $ 1.7 million grant. The rehabilitation center says they received $ 10,000 as part of a $ 1.7 million grant awarded to other studies. We apologize for the inconvenience. **
