At this library, you can check out some pierogies
What do food trucks do in the winter?
Well, at least one is going into a deep freeze, sort of.
ZumZum, which runs the Pittsburgh Pierogi Truck, is partnering with the Northland Public Library Foundation, which is selling 10 varieties of the company's deep-frozen pierogies for sale through Jan. 22 -- part of the Bread for Books fundraiser. The pierogies cost $8 per dozen. You pick them up on Saturday, Feb. 2.
The McCandless library receives 35 percent of the proceeds, as well as 15 percent of all sales when the Pierogi Truck visits the library from 2 to 7 p.m. Jan. 15 to sell the delectable dumplings hot.
Visit polishpierogi.com for more on the truck, which also makes other appearances all winter, including at 4 p.m. every Wednesday at the House of 100 Beers in New Kensington. Says Lynne Szarnicki, president of Zum Zum and PolishPierogi.com, "We are taking requests for appearances for 2013 now, including special events or lunch at worksites/office buildings."
