Angela Prattis offers free lunches, supplied by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, every day to needy children in her Chester Township neighborhood during the summer (video below).

Even though Prattis files all the legal paperwork, she is facing a $600-a-day fine next summer, because she did not clear her charity act with Chester Township officials, reports WTXF-TV.

Prattis has given away meals to about 60 children on her property during the summer.

According to the Delaware County Times, a resident told Chester Township officials, who investigated and ruled that Prattiis' charirty act is not permitted without a variance.

Chester Township officials say that because Prattis lives in a residential area, handing out food to needy children is not allowed. Officials say Prattis must appear before a zoning board to request a variance, which could cost up to $1,000.

Prattis says that she is not going to stop feeding the children, reports the Delaware County Times.
