When the ‘Skeleton Crew’ becomes just a skeleton, from People’s Light

“Skeleton Crew” is extended through July 15 at People’s Light, 39 Conestoga Road, Malvern. 610-644-3500 or peopleslight.org.

    Review: When the 'Skeleton Crew' becomes just a skeleton, from People's Light
    The question at the Detroit plant that produces thousands of car parts a day is not just whether the place will close down. The persistent rumor along the assembly lines is that it will. The question is whether the skilled workers will get a financial package before they're led out the door.

Across the street from a giant grocery store in North Philly, one man sells cheap bags of produce to residents

Perhaps Fresh Grocer and Aleksandr Faynberg are competitors, but for those who live near Broad and Jefferson streets, they both fill an essential need.

Lee added that the truck is easier to navigate than the Fresh Grocer, which sits one block over at Broad and Oxford streets and is often crowded. Cheaper prices at the truck may be another draw for North Philadelphia residents, who Faynberg said are the majority of his customers.

    In North Philly, a produce truck and a supermarket are fighting food insecurity - Generocity Philly
    On maps detailing food insecurity in the city, North Philadelphia has long been marked as an area to be concerned about. But, as more studies and reports of hunger in the neighborhood surface, a produce truck on Broad and Jefferson streets quietly sells produce for about $1 to $2 a bag - and has been for nearly 25 years.
