Meet our Community Plates donors. These organizations, companies, restaurants, farms, and markets are part of our community dedicated to helping eliminate hunger in the U.S. Our donors are the backbone to what we do, and provide the food that volunteer food runners rescue and deliver to our partner agencies.
I could not be more pleased that both Mitchell Colgan of Colgan Farms in Windsor CT and Erica Pagliuco of the Coventry Farmers market have decided to work with us. We have been trying to reach out to large farmers and farmers markets for a while now with little success. Finally Erica responded with enthusiasm and is dedicated to the food rescue mission. Since we started working together we have had more fresh produce than ever before. Not only are we able to give it out in the food pantry and use it in meals at our soup kitchen but we were also able to offer items such as cucumbers and tomatoes for our soup kitchen guests to take home with them (we’ve never been able to do that) we not only want to promote healthy meals when they are on MACC premises but promote them making healthy choices at home and through these amazing donations, we are able to do that! We cannot say enough about these two generous individuals, Mitchell and Erica!
