Alumni Spotlight: Max Gordon, ’12 Wants Rochester to Have “A Holiday Without Hunger”

Max Gordon, ’12 wanted to do his part for the Rochester community during these difficult times. Max, owner of The Hideaway, partnered with Roc Food Relief who has been working with families since the start of the Pandemic. The Hideaway has done similar programs for Easter where health care workers could receive a free easter meal. This time with the holidays they wanted to focus on families rather than individuals. Roc Food Relief provided Max with the families they have been working with since the start. The Hideaway is doing its part by accepting donations, cooking, and helping the meals get where they need to be. Each family will receive a full holiday meal of ham, scallop potatoes, glazed carrots, green bean casserole, rolls and butter, and chocolate pie for every member of their family. They are currently at 200 meals but would love to help more families.
