Anna Zinn, lovingly referred to as "Mammy Weitzel," is the namesake of our lunch program. Born in the Pennsylvana Dutch area of Adams County in 1884, she married Earl Weitzel and the couple had nine children. Although the family's life was a modest one, Mammy always shared the little they had with others. Living near the train station in Sinking Spring brought many a knock on the door by a hungry stranger. Mammy never turned anyone away.
Her life is an inspiration to all of us as well as the words of Matthew 25:35, "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in." Her legacy continues today.
