Beth Stafford

Executive Director/CEO

MACC Charities is the definition of blessed, which is more than coincidental fortune. MACC was prayed for, planned for and sacrificed for by those who founded it to be a means to help people in times of emergency. Fulfillment of its mission to build partnerships to break cycles of poverty, the blessed has become the blessing to those in need.

Assistant Executive Director

Whether you realize it or not, mental health plays a big role in your overall well-being. It refers to our emotional and social well-being and impacts how we think, feel and behave. It’s normal for your mental health to shift over time – we all face challenges in our lives. Get “Back to Basics” during May’s Mental Health Awareness Month today!

Chef Ferdinand Cruz

Community Kitchen Head Chef

Boy, we were cooking today! We had to come in like a wrecking ball for Taco Tuesday!
Today we served our community a fiesta taco salad. Smoky stewed black eyed peas, seasoned ground beef atop shredded lettuce, fresh Pico de Gallo, crispy tortilla strips, house made avocado crema and finally garnished with cilantro, scallion and a lime wedge!
Buen Provecho!

When I was a kid, my mother would make me a special cake for my birthday. She would make a cake with a theme or character. Here at the Emergency Food Pantry we would like to give a kid that awesome childhood memory too. Help us make memories by donating much needed cake mix for our families to enjoy. #BirthdayCake

Shout out to the Manchester Police Department’s PAR Unit and especially Officer Sampaio for the dedication to helping us address the homeless population in a positive manner. Officer Sampaio works closely with MACC’s Outreach Department and partners with us to conduct outreach visits to neighbors identified as unsheltered. This alliance of caring makes our community a better place for all.
