This Saturday, May 12 three different organizations will have fundraising meals in Tarentum. None of the meals are scheduled to overlap or compete with the others. So, if you are hungry anytime between 8 AM and 6 PM, one of the meals will be open.
You can start the day with the pancake breakfast at Pollock Lodge (no relation). They will serve breakfast from 8 to 11 AM. This is their monthly breakfast of pancakes and sausage, and mush. Funds raised support a number of charities.
Then for lunch you can pick up barbecued chicken at the First United Presbyterian Church of Tarentum. A group of men at the church cook the chicken outside and prepare the meals for pick-up in the church parking lot. The meal is served take-out only. It is $4.50 for a half-chicken. Funds raised go to missions. The event runs from 11 AM to 4 PM.
And then for supper you can have the best ham loaf in the Valley at the Central Presbyterian Church. You can eat the meal as a sit down dinner or take a meal home. It is $7.00 for a meal. This event runs from 4 to 6 PM.
Just call Tarentum "The Food Court of the Allegheny Valley".
