A Philadelphia woman known as the “free lunch lady” could face a $600 fine due to a law in her town.

Angela Prattis, who runs a free lunch program in Chester township, recently received a letter stating that she needs a variance to run the program in the residential area.

As many as 60 children a day receive lunches from Prattis through the state run program.

“We’re talking about children,” said Prattis. “Children. It’s unbelievable. They’ve never once said anything to me in reference to what to do to be in the right standing with the township.”
