Giving Back at Braintree Community Food Pantry

McSweeney & Ricci Serves Wednesday Night Supper at

Braintree Community Food Pantry


On Wednesday, May 25th, McSweeney & Ricci served the meal at the Braintree Community Food Pantry located inside the First Baptist Church on Washington Street in Braintree, MA.
The Food Pantry serves up “Wednesday Night Supper” free of charge to food pantry clients, church members, friends and community members two Wednesdays per month from 5:30-6:30 PM. For over twenty years the Food Pantry has also provided Braintree Residents in need, with a three day supply of food on a bi-weekly or monthly basis. The Pantry currently serves over 3000 people each year.
Employees, Account Manager-Nancy Matanes, Commercial Sales Executive-Patrick Leary, Claims Representative-Jaclyn Pierce, Personal Risk Manager-Adam Federer, Director of Operations-Susan Riggins, Commercial Sales Executive-Jake Smith, Commercial Sales Executive-Kyle Carrigan and President Mary Lou Ricci served a meal of pulled BBQ chicken and pork sandwiches, baked beans, cole slaw and home made corn bread for dessert.

McSweeney & Ricci’s own Adam Federer cooked all the delicious pulled BBQ chicken and pork, which everyone agreed was the best they’ve tasted! Not only does Adam work at McSweeney & Ricci but he also has his own catering business on the side. The agency has been lucky to sample his creations on numerous occasions, most recently when Adam provided everyone with a taco buffet lunch on Cinco De Mayo!

Everyone really enjoyed the experience of serving the approximately 60 patrons that came for dinner. Wednesday Night Supper at the Food Pantry is a relaxed, home-like atmosphere and provides a great opportunity for people to come together in conversation while enjoying a meal together. There is a true feeing of community and McSweeney & Ricci is proud to have a longstanding relationship with the Food Pantry and hopes to continue to volunteer there indefinitely.
