Welcome to the our weekly newsletter The MACC Minute for March 19, 2020.  We hope it will inspire you to get involved.

News from our Food Pantry

Using the Emergency Food Pantry has made it far easier, financially for the households we serve. This is possible when community members donate perishable and non-perishable food items to MACC. We are always in need of items such as pasta sauce, cereal, frozen meats, fresh produce and toiletries. Consider donating like items to ease the burden to households in need.

Beth Stafford

Executive Director/CEO

Please be assured that MACC is taking all of the recommended health precautions regarding the current corona virus threat. We remain committed to serving the hungry and those in need. Our delivery of services may look different during this health crisis but we will not abandon those in need. Donations of face masks are welcomed and we will use them.

Shannon Baldassario

Director of Services


In times of crisis, we as a community come together. At MACC, we are standing strong supporting and assisting those with emergency needs. Please consider supporting your neighbors by donating perishable and non-perishable food items to our emergency food pantry or donating to our Emergency fund to assist someone who cannot work and pay for their monthly basic need expenses.

Chef MACC Kitchen

This month, we had our monthly volunteer appreciation happy hour gathering at the Bistro on Main. It’s a nice way for our MACC team to share stories, jokes & laughs with our hard working & dedicated volunteers who come. I had the honor in catering the function. We shared pot stickers, empanadas… but the corned beef sliders were the best!!

Outreach Case Worker

When a person is homeless, they often lose most of their household items. A small part of Outreach is replacing some of these items once they are housed again. Outreach provides a starter kit program. A starter kit is essentially household items like dinner plates, silverware, sheets, cooking utensils pots and pans, towels, and more. Donate your gently used items today!

News from Bistro On Main

“Bistro on Main is primarily in the people business. People are our bottom line. When we as an organization invest in people we have an opportunity to not just change lives but to change legacies, not just to change families but to change communities. That’s what it means for MACC to invest in social enterprise.” – GM & Executive Chef Ben Dubow
