Please Remember to Pay It Forward
Any and all port carbon residents .... chef Hiram Quintana has a food tent open just outside the borough building. We have breakfast being served now, lunch will be coming soon, and dinner will be available as well. If you need a hot meal please come to the tent. We want to help the community during this difficult time. Many local business have helped support this effort as well as individuals from Tamaqua.

Update 8/15/2018.... Chef Hiram, his crew, and several volunteers will be serving a hot breakfast in the morning. We will also have a hot lunch and hot dinner. There are 3 hot meals being served again for Wednesday. If you know someone who can't get out and needs food please let me know by calling me at 570-778-6391.
