Help Feed Our Community

There are 8,000 food insecure families in the greater Manchester area, and with the community plates app, we can triple the amount of food available to the families we serve.

Part of our core mission at MACC Charities is to feed those who are hungry and provide healthy food to those facing food insecurity. We do this through our “Kitchen On Main” lunch program, Community Pantry, mobile & satellite pantries, as well as outreach to local elementary school children, families and the homeless in our community.

“Food Rescue” is the process by which MACC is able to do this. Leveraging technology that allows 24/7 communication, volunteers transport excess, usable food from local restaurants, retailers and farmers to MACC on a daily basis. The food that we “rescue” gets distributed in our pantries, Grab n Go program, and used creatively in our kitchen.

Together, we can make a difference and fight hunger in our community… will you join us?”

How it works

Surplus, fresh food is donated by restaurants and markets.

Local volunteers donate their time, vehicles and fuel to rescue fresh food
