Musicians to perform in support of food shelf

Posted on December 8, 2014 |
By John Flowers

MIDDLEBURY — It’s not unusual for aspiring musicians to simply play for food or drink as compensation for a gig in order to get a foot in the entertainment door. Clint Bierman and his band, The Grift, are fortunate enough to have the talent and reputation that ensures their performances are rewarded with a paycheck rather than free beer or leftovers from a buffet table.

But on Monday, Dec. 22, Bierman and around 15 other well-known Vermont acts will go back to playing for food — this time for the benefit of others who might otherwise go hungry.

ADDISON COUNTY — The average price of a well-balanced meal in the United States is around $2.70, according to the hunger relief charity Feeding America. In Vermont, the average is closer to $3.14, and in Addison County, the figure rises again, to $3.66.

HOPE seeks donations for those needing winter fuel

Posted on November 5, 2012 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Officials at the organization Helping Overcome Poverty’s Effects (HOPE) are bracing for what they believe will be a substantial spike in requests for assistance from area residents unable to pay their fuel and utility bills.

As of the end of September, HOPE was more than 50-percent shy of meeting its $128,000 donation goal to help people facing electricity shut-offs and/or at risk of seeing their fuel oil tanks go dry. This is assistance accorded to people who have exhausted their own resources and governmental assistance programs.
