Executive Director/CEO

My eye opening realization of the obstacles individuals experience rehabbing from health related issues make me think how our clients sometimes face similar obstacles that aren’t as apparent as an injury, and they may be struggling silently. Health, involves every system within our bodies and is achieved through a lifestyle that supports it. What’s your way to a better life?

Pantry Manager

This past Tuesday, we found ourselves busy with food rescue donations coming in at the same time. It was an overwhelming experience we found ourselves in as we were short on volunteers for the day. Thankfully we had our dynamic trio of ladies who worked hard by myside all day to complete the tasks. Thanks to Donna, Pat, and Jane.

A Community Angel… who worships at Wapping Community Church in South Windsor, CT and wishes to remain anonymous, made a donation of grocery store gift cards with a check to purchase needed food items, protein, milk, butter and eggs for those we serve at MACC. Thank you, to Ken and Linda for coming in to MACC with her generous gift.

Community Kitchen Head Chef

Since joining MACC’s team over three years ago, I believe, myself and every volunteer I have met along the way agree, this is not your ordinary “Soup Kitchen”. I pride myself on excellence and share my desire to provide quality food and delivery of service to everyone in need of a hot meal. All great things happen in the kitchen!

Community Outreach and Emergency Services Manager

Sometimes, you can walk down the street and recognize those in need, but at that moment you may not see the cause. My job has allowed me to see situations through my client’s eyes, and although their reasons may not seem clear to you, they are real to them. My hope is that I always see all perspectives without judgement.

Bistro On Main

The Bistro is excited to welcome our new Executive Chef Rasheen Mathis. Chef Rasheen was born and raised in NYC then moved to CT. He brings 10+ years of top-notch culinary experience to the Bistro. Chef is looking forward to bringing a positive spin and gourmet air to your Bistro favorites and new menu options. Please stop on bye soon.
