Abstract

"So Noted" piece critical of Andrew "Skip" Matson, the executive director of the Portland Community Food and Nutrition Program (PCFNP), and his management of the program. Noting that only 37 cents of every dollar received by PCFNP was used to buy food for the needy, the primary purpose of the organization, the author questions whether the money is well spent. Commenting on the ways in which Matson represents the facts relating to his organization and its accomplishments, and on the fact that Maine congressmen Tom Allen and John Baldacci are pressing the Maine Department of Human Services to give Matson $20,000 until he can apply for a new federal grant, author David Tyler forcefully states that Matson doesn't deserve new funding, since there are many other deserving agencies in Portland that do a better job at feeding the poor.
