MACC Food Rescue Program Kicks Off In October via Hartford Courant

We are pleased to announce we are working with MACC Charities in Manchester, Connecticut, our newest community partner in the fight against food insecurity.

MACC Charities has partnered with Community Plates to help end the wasting of food. As a result, MACC has officially started its Food Rescue Program, which began on Oct. 1. The program focuses on “rescuing” quality food that has been left over from businesses and would have otherwise been thrown away.

MACC Charities is looking for food donors, food runners and supporters for this new initiative.

“It’s all about quick, direct transfer; getting the food directly from the business to MACC,” said Community Engagement Manager Meagan Sprague. “What we do is log all of our food runs on the [Community Plates] technology and volunteers can log on a computer or an app on their phone and see what food runs are available and then they can sign up.”
