News from our Food Pantry
Hometown Supporters! Big Kuddos to the 2-man crew at My Papa’s Homemade right here in Manchester for donating 384 jars of their homemade pasta sauce. A shelf-stabled item most requested by pantry families. Their grassroots effort is growing locally and is now available in almost 200 stores across New England. This is the true meaning of local supporting local.
H-a-m-e-t-z is how Rabbi Konigsburg spells “blessing”. Hametz is food made with leaven, forbidden for use by Jews during the festival of Passover. The Rabbi turned this religious restriction into a community blessing for the hungry, when he received written permission from members of the Synagogue to sell their “Hametz” to our Mayor, who then gifted MACC the proceeds $1,015!
