Food Pantries Face New Challenges—and Come Together

Acord Food Pantry of South Hamilton, Massachusetts, may be losing some storage room and workspace but not their spirit of serving the North Shore community.

After the death of the former building owner, Harbor Light Community Partners (HLCP) of Beverly purchased the building where Acord now operates. It plans to install four affordable apartments, one of which will be handicapped accessible.

The change, however, will cramp the storefront size space but will not affect the number of people Acord is serving, according to Deby Baker, who has worked as its part time managing director since May 2010 and is Acord’s only paid employee. Acord currently provides food for an average of 300 households per week from Hamilton, Wenham, Ipswich, Essex, Manchester, and Topsfield, according to Baker.

“We will still serve the people, no matter what,” said Baker.

Acord is one of dozens of pantries on the North Shore surviving to support others in spite of economic or real estate setbacks.
Collaborating its efforts with various pantries, Acord receives weekly drop offs of food from Gloucester’s Open Door Food Pantry’s truck and other donors.

“Most of these food pantry organizations are small, so when they band together they accomplish much more,” said Dave Welbourne, executive director of Essex County Community Foundation. “The coming together is largely an efficiency improvement. It’s easier to raise money, get supplies and so on.”

Each pantry operates differently. “For years now Acord has had a lot of people working a little bit,” said Ann Smith, Acord volunteer and board member. “We find this helps.”

Five to eight volunteers work per day, two days a week. The pantry has up to 100 volunteer workers, ranging in ages from six to 80.

Still, with all their progress and commitment, Acord volunteers are preparing for construction that’s set for completion by July, making its pantry a little cozier. But it’s not something Baker is complaining about. “We are still absolutely thankful for the space we'll have,” Baker said.

State and town governments, and public donations will fund the construction of the new apartments. “There is very little affordable housing in Hamilton,” said Andrew DeFranza, executive director of Harbor Light Community Partners.

As budgets tighten, space diminishes and need increases because of the economy, Welbourne said food pantries across the North Shore—like Acord—are holding firm in their work and uniting in new ways.

“The bottom line is we need to make sure that everyone has food,” said Baker.

  43. Poker is a family of card games that combines gambling, strategy, and skill. All poker variants involve betting as an intrinsic part of play, and determine the winner of each hand according to the combinations of players' cards, at least some of which remain hidden until the end of the hand. Poker games vary in the number of cards dealt, the number of shared or "community" cards, the number of cards that remain hidden, and the betting procedures.

    In most modern poker games the first round of betting begins with one or more of the players making some form of a forced bet (the blind or ante). In standard poker, each player bets according to the rank they believe their hand is worth as compared to the other players. The action then proceeds clockwise as each player in turn must either match (or "call") the maximum previous bet, or fold, losing the amount bet so far and all further involvement in the hand. A player who matches a bet may also "raise" (increase) the bet. The betting round ends when all players have either called the last bet or folded. If all but one player folds on any round, the remaining player collects the pot without being required to reveal their hand. If more than one player remains in contention after the final betting round, a showdown takes place where the hands are revealed, and the player with the winning hand takes the pot.

    With the exception of initial forced bets, money is only placed into the pot voluntarily by a player who either believes the bet has positive expected value or who is trying to bluff other players for various strategic reasons. Thus, while the outcome of any particular hand significantly involves chance, the long-run expectations of the players are determined by their actions chosen on the basis of probability, psychology, and game theory.

    Poker has increased in popularity since the beginning of the 20th century and has gone from being primarily a recreational activity confined to small groups of enthusiasts to a widely popular activity, both for participants and spectators, including online, with many professional players and multimillion-dollar tournament prizes.

    In casual play, the right to deal a hand typically rotates among the players and is marked by a token called a dealer button (or buck). In a casino, a house dealer handles the cards for each hand, but the button (typically a white plastic disk) is rotated clockwise among the players to indicate a nominal dealer to determine the order of betting. The cards are dealt clockwise around the poker table, one at a time.

    One or more players poker online are usually required to make forced bets, usually either an ante or a blind bet (sometimes both). The dealer shuffles the cards, the player on the chair to his or her right cuts, and the dealer deals the appropriate number of cards to the players one at a time, beginning with the player to his or her left. Cards may be dealt either face-up or face-down, depending on the variant of poker being played. After the initial deal, the first of what may be several betting rounds begins. Between rounds, the players' hands develop in some way, often by being dealt additional cards or replacing cards previously dealt. At the end of each round, all bets are gathered into the central pot.
