POTTSTOWN, Pa. - Folks who didn't have all the fixins to have a Memorial Day picnic got a special treat Wednesday in Pottstown.

The food pantry at Bethel Community Church packed bags of groceries to give out to those who need them.

They distributed 150 bags stuffed with black Angus hamburgers, hot dogs, buns, baked beans, ketchup and mustard and apples.

They say Pottstown has been hit hard by the coronavirus crisis.

"Communities like Pottstown are ravaged by the pandemic. That combined with people being locked in, being able to give the food to the people who need the food and provide some relief is really important, we think," said Gerald Baron with Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.

He said a lot of people in Pottstown have lost their jobs, been furloughed, or been hit with pay cuts.
