“Being kind to the poor is like lending to the Lord” ~Proverbs 19:17

The best way to use your hands for good work is to connect them to other sets of hands doing the same. Being kind to the poor would beg the question, “Does this work bless the people receiving it?” If your answer is yes, join us. #SupportMACC

Shannon Baldassario

Assistant Executive Director

MACC was blessed with an incredible donation from Eastern CT Medical Association recently. Formed in 1972, ECMA has held its mission to promote and improve the community’s health, promote the study of medicine, research, and continuing education of the organization’s doctors, and contribute to specific local projects as approved by the organization. We equally believe that food is medicine. #BuildingPartnerships

Chef Ferdinand Cruz

Community Kitchen Head Chef

I’m excited to announce and welcome back familiar faces led by the always enthusiastic Mr. Jim Healy. The Manchester Transitional Center students are back after taking a short hiatus. We are excited to get back into the swing of things after Covid had rudely changed the routine for everyone and continue to teach and watch these kids grow with us.

Community Outreach and Emergency Services Manager

MACC’s Community Outreach & Emergency Services receives requests for how an organization or individual can assist those we serve throughout the year. One beneficial means of assistance we utilize moving into the fall and winter months are gift cards used to buy items such as boots, hooded sweatshirts, gloves, etc., in specific sizes based on the individual we are serving.
