We all know people who are suffering from the ill effects of COVID-19. If you want to help a loved one, friend or stranger negotiate the difficulties caused by hunger, financial stress, uncertainty, and isolation, but do not know where to start, start with MACC (860-647-0440). Together, we can identify the cause of the problem and influence a positive outcome.

Chef Ferdinand Cruz

MACC’s Community Kitchen

This past week we received a beautiful donation of locally grown baby kale. Thank you, Zoe and the Community Child Guidance Clinic, for thinking of MACC’s Kitchen and giving us some nice greens to be able to serve our community. Drizzled olive oil, a fresh squeeze of lemon, black pepper and parmesan cheese, made a great garnish for today’s lunch!
