In the Westbrook area your donations of cash and food will help to feed more than 50 fami- lies a month. That is how many families use Mary and Martha's Pantry food shelf in Westbrook. The food shelf distributed over 40,850 pounds of food in 2012, served a total of 2,080 individuals, and a total of 471 households were served also. According to Margaret Palan, Community Resource Specialist, volunteers contributed a total of 1,911 hours in 2012. She said, "We couldn't keep our food shelves open without the great help from our volunteers! They are the best! We are always looking for more volunteers to shop with clients or unload the food truck from Second Harvest once a month on a Thursday." After meeting eligibility requirements, Food shelf volunteer Carol Olsem, and director Kathy Zens. clients are allowed to visit once a month if needed. Senior citizen numbers are up, serving an average of 18 a month, age 65 and over. Income eligibility is 200 percent of the Federal Poverty level. Volunteers and families are asking your help and continuing support of gifts in money, food, time, talent or treasures. STRETCH .your donation Food shelves can stretch cash further than donations of food because of their access to discount products and programs. Help us feed more Minnesota families by donating cash to your local food shelf toda During Minnesota FoodShare month all donations are spread further through the generosity of the Feinstein Foundation. The foundation, in addition to coordinating FoodShare Month, also distributes money to food shelves state wide through a "Food Fund". FoodShare works year round to get donations from corporations, individuals, foundations and businesses. One hundred perc t of all donations received in March go directly to the fund as well. Dollars from the fund are distributed to local food shelves based on the numbers of individu- als served. Local donations stay local. Foundation benefactor Allan Feinstein will give one million dollars back to the food shelves across the country. Participating food shelves will receive money from the foundation divided propor- tionately in full among agencies receiving donations toward this offer. When asked why he continues to do this, he states that "my money started this campaign but it is you who will help decide how many hun- gry people in your town will be fed this year. All that will matter to us someday is what we did while we were here to help those who needed us". FoodShare on page 2 Spring ahead, fall back, twice a year people have to deal with the beginning or end of Daylight Saving Time Tom Merchant Sentinel Tribune SPECIAL -- There are a number of rea- sons that we subscribe to Daylight Saving Time in this country, and many other coun- tries around the world. Benjamin Franklin is given credit for the concept in this country. The basic idea was to make better use of daylight hours by shifting the clock forward in the Spring and backward in the fall. Even though Franklin was given credit for Daylight Saving Time (not Daylight Savings Time -- the word rather than Savin_gs is the correct usage), he only proposed rising earlier to reduce the use of candles, rather than changing the time. The credit for that goes to Englishman William Willet who led the first campaign to implement Daylight Saving Time in 1905. He proposed the United Kingdom move its clocks forward by 80 minutes between April and October. Germany was the first to enact Daylight Saving Time in 1916 in an effort to save elec- tricity during World War I.
