It was with great pride that Isaac’s President, Mike Weaver, presented a check to the PA Breast Cancer Coalition on Friday, November 14th. Thanks to the support of our wonderful customers, our “Think Pink…Think Isaac’s!” campaign in the month of October raised $10,400 that will help support the PBCC’s programs and services for breast cancer survivors and their families!
During the month of October, for every sandwich ordered off the special “Think Pink…Think Isaac’s!” menu, $1 was donated to the PBCC. In addition, Isaac’s locations sold sunglasses, wristbands and other “Think Pink” merchandise to help raise additional money. Plus 2 special “Think Pink” Community Night Fundraisers were held company-wide.
Thank you to all our customers who helped us make “Think Pink…Think Isaac’s!” a success! Visit www.PABreastCancer.org to learn more about PBCC’s programs and services.

Isaac’s Fresh Local Corn Chowder is finally in season! A seasonal favorite since 2006, our popular corn chowder is made with locally-grown sweet corn. This year our corn will be harvested from Brook Lawn Farm Market, a family produce farm and roadside market located off Rt. 501 near Neffsville in the heart of Lancaster County. With over 100 acres in production, Brook Lawn Farm Market’s, sweet corn isn’t the only crop grown…they have strawberries, peaches, tomatoes, pumpkins…the list goes on.
The farm has been in the Erb family since 1938 and a roadside stand was started in 1954 which grew into a more permanent structure in 1960. Since then it has expanded into the market that’s there today. Brook Lawn Farm utilizes environmentally responsible production practices including reduced tillage and no-till operations, water-conserving drip irrigation systems and integrated pest management. The crops they grow are old standard varieties, including many heirlooms…and no GMO plants. Brook Lawn Farm Market is also a local employer. They have 32 seasonal employees (many are college and high school students) that work from April through the end of October with a core group that takes care of the farm year round.
I caught up with the current owner, James “Farmer Jim” Erb, last week for a tour of the farm and market. It was a great visit and I got to learn a great deal about the corn we’ll be getting for our chowder. Farmer Jim told me this year they have 25 – 30 acres of sweet corn which are composed of 10 different varieties starting with White-Out at the beginning of the season and ending with Argent. The corn is hand-picked…yes, that’s hand-picked…at 5:30 in the morning. Some is for the market, some for local organizations like churches and fire companies that use it in their soup sales…but a lot of it will end up at Isaac’s after it’s picked up by Kegel’s Produce to be husked, cleaned and cut off the cob!
As part of my tour, Farmer Jim demonstrated the right way to pick corn (extra bonus…I got to take the ears we picked home for dinner that night) and how the corn is so sweet you can taste it right there in the field! And the tour didn’t end with the corn fields…I got to go through the peach and plum orchards, too. Brook Lawn Farm Market has about 64 varieties of peaches…they’re one of the first in the area to have them and also one of the last. Another crop they grow a lot of is tomatoes…with 60 varieties of heirloom tomatoes. And don’t forget pumpkins and squash…over 100 varieties of those!
If you’re in the Lancaster area, be sure to stop by Brook Lawn Farm Market! They’re open Monday – Saturday. Visit their website at www.BrookLawnFarmMarket.com to learn more. And don’t miss out getting your share of Fresh Local Corn Chowder at your local Isaac’s while it’s in season!

Didjaknow that Administrative Professionals Week got it’s start back in 1952? Back then it was called National Secretaries Week. And it was actually celebrated in June…that got changed to the last full week in April starting in 1955. Then it went through 2 name changes…the 1st was Professional Secretaries Week in 1981 and finally in 2000 it was changed to Administrative Professionals Week.
With more than 4.1 million Administrative Assistants in the U.S., Administrative Professionals Week is celebrated all across the country and provides the opportunity for employers to show appreciation for all the hard work their administrative staffs do with flowers, candy and gift cards. But I think the luckiest Administrative Professionals are those who get treated to Isaac’s!

Isaac’s “Get Soup! Give Soup!” campaign wrapped up last month and we are happy to announce that were able to donate 975 gallons of our wonderful made-from-scratch soup to people in need all across South Central Pennsylvania…and it was all because of YOU!
For every 100 cups of soup customers purchased during January and February, we donated a gallon soup to local soup kitchens and shelters. With all the snow and cold temperatures we had during those months, those 975 gallons of soup were greatly appreciated!
And the giving isn’t over yet…many of our locations connected with new organizations that our employees want to volunteer with. For every hour an Isaac’s employee volunteers, $3 is donated to the organization they were volunteering for! We also have Community Night Fundraisers scheduled for some of the organizations we helped, too! How cool is that!?
Stay tuned for even more wonderful news about our volunteering and fundraising efforts and again, thank you for helping us help those in need!
