http://www.wbhm.org/News/2010/bayoufoodpantry.html "It was just something I wanted to do. I wanted to have a small food pantry, so I could help people in the community. And we have two rooms and a hall in our main church building that was our food pantry, and we were serving, a high for me would be 124 twice a month. I was opening it twice a month." At that time, this fishing village was known as the "Seafood Capital of Alabama." It was not only suffering physically from flood damage, but also economically. 80% of the work force was connected to the seafood industry. Shrimpers, crabbers, oystermen, processors, and shipyard workers. And work just stopped. Daphne German distributes food a couple of times per month. She's reached out to a vast network of churches and other relief organizations throughout the country. And, she recently acquired around 100,000 pounds of food through a grant won by the Bay Area Food Bank. 'That may sound like a lot, but it's only enough for 5 food distribution days between January and March next year. You'd never know German was 69 years old. Her phone starts ringing around 5 a.m. most mornings and doesn't quiet until 10 o'clock at night. She hands out hugs like they're fire sale fliers and directs volunteers with a symphony conductor's efficiency. She has the vigor of someone in her 30s. "It's fun. I don't mean to be smart aleck, but how many people do you know that's 69 that can do that. If you stop, then you stop. I have never watched soap operas, so I'm not going to start in my old age. I am not."
