Mace is a 13-year-old “hunger fighter” who turned his Thanksgiving experience into a determination that has allowed him to serve over 1 million meals for our community.
Half a lifetime ago – or 6 years ago if you’re Mace Massingill – his family encouraged guests to bring food donations to their Thanksgiving. Mace went with his mother to help drop off their collected donations to Central Texas Food Bank, which allowed him to come face-to-face with the reality of how many families go hungry and how much more could be done. His contributions that day fed 147 people, but he wanted to do more. Mace set a goal to raise 1,000 meals by the end of the year, and not only met that goal in a few short weeks but ended up exceeding five times that number of meals.
Mace has been setting big goals each year, meeting and surpassing each one. To follow Mace’s story and support him in his mission, check out his full Legend page.
