Welcome to the our weekly newsletter
The MACC Minute January 13, 2022. We hope it will inspire you to get involved.
Thanks to the generosity of our community, our pantry shelves are full of beans, tomatoes and pasta. What better way to warm your bellies on these icy evenings than with a hearty bowl of Pasta e Fagioli? We will get our families started with the base ingredients and recipe and leave the rest up to them. Keep warm and enjoy.

It’s a SNOW DAY!!! MACC follows the Manchester Public School’s inclement weather schedule for are day to day administrative programs. This is for every department EXCEPT our essential service to providing lunch in our community. This past Friday, staff came together to assist the Community Kitchen in getting bagged lunches to 32 individuals who came out in the blistering cold.

MACC’s Community Kitchen
This past week Dan, one of our volunteers, shared with me a ‘Hoisin Meatloaf’ recipe that he had made at home. Personally, I’ve never tried it but he had great feedback on it so I decided to add it our February menu. I’ll try and replicate the original recipe. Hopefully the community and our local seniors will enjoy it too.
Every volunteer comes to MACC with the urge to give back. When you first start it can be overwhelming no matter which department you are in. With the guidance of the department manager and the rhythm in each department, you end up feeling like you are part of the MACC team quickly. SHOUT OUT TO THE ENTIRE MACC TEAM! #TEAMWORK
Community Outreach and Emergency Services Manager
As the year changed, so did our weather. A morning of treacherous icing, to a morning of exceeded snow fall amounts. While the weather is unpredictable, the services of MACC are not. Throughout this tough weather, Outreach continued as individuals were sheltered, meals were prepared and distributed, and our families’ needs were met with the predictable consistency of MACC Charities.
