Community Matters More Grant opportunity

Dear Friends of Everybody Eats. Thank you for checking out our blogsite and for your interest in this wonderful program which provides a free, nutritious meal to anyone who comes in the door. As you can imagine, donations and grants are the backbone of this program, along with the hard-working volunteers.

Bangor Savings Bank provides and extroadinary outreach funding program in "Community Matters More" and is in their Campaign for 2011 which provides a total of 68 grants to Maine organizations. The top vote-getting organizations in each region will receive $5,000 and the remaining 60 groups will receive $1,000 each. There are some pre-printed organizations listed as you will see, but write-in organizations have just as much of a chance to win a grant.

Please copy and paste this website address into your browser search area: go to the Downeast Region voting area and write in Everybody Eats, Ellsworth. You may also vote at any Bangor Savings Bank location. The deadline for voting is March 7, 2011.

The Board of Everybody Eats and all the guests who have taken part in our program thank you. Every penny helps!
