For Manayunk's Bruce Cooper, a rite of Christmas

Bruce Cooper makes his Christmas feast for the 16th year.

Homebound seniors in Manayunk, Roxborough, East Falls, Germantown, and parts of North Philly will enjoy a holiday feast on Sunday, Dec. 23, thanks to chef Bruce Cooper of Jake's & Cooper's Wine Bar in Manayunk, who will again join forces with Journey's Way, North Light Community Center  and the Manayunk Development Corporation.

More than 50 volunteers, including their families, will cook, pack and deliver 400 turkey meals.

This is the 16th year that Cooper has prepared and donated holiday meals to the community. The staff at Journey's Way reach out to the community to identify, assign routes, and deliver dinner. North Light recruits and oversees volunteer efforts and Manayunk Development helps assemble and delivers.
