Roasts for the Holidays

This annual event raises funds to allow the Max Cares Foundation, Inc. to provide quality meals during the holidays to those most in need who live in the Greater Hartford & Greater Springfield areas. Through donations given by guests at Max Restaurant Group locations and online at the Max Cares Foundation website, we are able to provide hundreds of people in our community an unforgettable meal.

This year the need is greater than ever, so we’re doing our part to help those experiencing food insecurity in our communities. The Max Cares Foundation has doubled our matching gift to $20K for 2020. Our ROASTS FOR THE HOLIDAYS campaign goal is to raise or exceed $20K to feed thousands of families via area shelters, soup kitchens, and our Max Cares Holiday Giveback where we will distribute 500 holiday meal grocery bags to those in need. You can participate by making a contribution to our matching gift campaign by:

  1. Adding a donation to your check when dining at your favorite Max Restaurant now through December 18.
  2. Adding a donation when you pick up your takeout order at your favorite Max Restaurant now through December 18.

With the pandemic and economic downturn, many families have to make difficult choices when it comes to putting food on the table. This year, Max Cares Foundation is doing its part to make sure that no one in our community goes without a festive holiday dinner. Thanks to the generous supporters of the Max Cares Foundation’s Roasts for the Holidays Campaign, this year we will be distributing 500 grocery bags containing the ingredients for families and individuals to make a home-cooked ham dinner for the holidays.

The Max Cares Holiday Giveback grocery bags will be distributed via a no-contact pick-up event on Saturday, December 19 from 10am to 2pm in the Hartford Municipal Parking Lot at 1203 Main Street (directly across from Dunkin’ Donuts Park). The free bags will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last, one bag per car.
