Help local Laura Prell Feed 108 Families

Laura Prell has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to help feed 108 families a real meal. Laura is working with the St. Peter's Church Food Bank and estimates it costs $20 to provide a family a real meal and is thus hoping to raise $2160. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. From the campaign page:

The idea of feeding 108 families a real meal with real food started a long time ago, but last year, I was reminded of this idea, when I was putting my food away after coming home from food shopping. Not everything would fit in my fridge and I was annoyed. Then I felt like someone smacked me in the face... I have too much food and it won't fit in my fridge... I am so blessed that I have never known hunger a day in my life. I knew I wanted to do something that showed how grateful I am for that. My husband and I, have always donated to food banks at the holidays, but we wanted to do more, make it more of a monthly reminder of how good we have it. We started buying $25.00 worth of extra groceries at our local wholesale club. Each time we went, it felt really good to see the food stack up in our entry way, but then I finally got around to dropping it off at our local food pantry in town. They were so grateful they invited me in for a tour of the pantry. I asked if there were things they needed? The director said, that coffee and tea are things people really love, but don't get a lot of...that stopped me in my tracks, as a new mom I can't imagine not being about to have a cup of coffee or tea in the morning. They also need simple things like flour and baking power. They also never get chicken breast or fresh veggies and fruits.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.
