Good Food Cheap

Many of us take the food that graces our table for granted.

Others, usually those involved in a struggle to obtain it, know it isn't always so easy.

For those living on a tight budget (more and more of us it seems these days), Genesis Housing is providing some tips Thursday on how to fill that icebox on an ever-tightening budget.

The outsized poster above has all the salient details.

The workshop will be held at the Cluster Outreach Center run by the Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities which, itself, could use a little help.

This photo at left was posted in the Cluster's Facebook page on May 10 with the following caption:

"For anyone living near Pottstown, please consider donating canned soup to the Pottstown Cluster. This is a picture taken today of the soup shelves in the food pantry."

Needless to say, donations will be welcomed.

The Outreach Center is located at the corner of King and Franklin streets in Pottstown in the old American Legion building. It provides free food and clothing to needy families in the area.

You can also help out by playing golf in the Cluster's annual golf tournament.

It will be held Monday, May 20 at Hickory Valley Golf Club (Presidential course).

The format is a scramble/shotgun start.

Registration is from 9:30 to 10:40 a.m. and the cost is $110 per golfer or $440 per foursome, which includes lunch cart, greens fee, beverage reception and dinner. 

Tee-off time is at 11 a.m. The rules briefing is at 10:40 a.m. and the reception begins at 4 p.m., which is also when the putting contest conclusion will be held.

Dinner, the awards, silent auction and 50-50 drawing will all begin at 5 p.m.
