YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN)- It’s National Pierogi Day on Thursday.

You can celebrate the 8th Annual National Pierogi Day-Youngstown at Kravitz Deli on Belmont Avenue. St. Paul’s Church in New Middletown has the Valley favorite available, too.

Church members have been busy pinching dough. They’ve been doing it for over 40 years. The pierogies come stuffed with cheese. potato or cabbage.

Operations manager Grant Williams says the tradition is more than a fundraiser, it’s the heart of the church.

“People here, they’ve been doing it for 20, 30 years, or their families were part of the people that originally started the program,” Willams said.

You can call St. Paul’s at 330-542-3525 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Wednesday through Friday to order the pierogies.

You can also stop by Kravitz for a variety of pierogi flavors and polka music on Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
