— Depressed Cake Shop, the pop-up bakery initiative to bring awareness to mental illness and health, is taking over several Austin bakeries next month. This includes Skull and Cakebones, Sweetish Hill Bakery, CupPrimo, Sweet Treets Bakery, and Zucchini Kill Bakery. For the month of May, the bakeries will bake up gray desserts (“to signify the gray cloud that can descend over a beautiful world when someone is struggling with mental health issues) that contain brighter colors within (that “represent the hope that always continues”).

In.gredients, the zero-waste grocery store in Cherrywood, is closing. The last day will be on Friday, April 27. It launched an IndieGoGo campaign earlier last year to help keep the grocery store afloat. Neighboring restaurants like Unit D Pizzeria and Patrizi’s even offered discounts to customers who shopped at the grocery store. While it did raise its goal of $30,000 that wasn’t enough. Owners and brothers Christian and Joseph Lane opened at 2610 Manor Road in 2012.
