The mission of the Food n’ Friends Free Daily Kitchens is to provide nutritious meals to those in need. All are welcome to share the meal and fellowship with others. The Food n’ Friends program of the Attleboro Area Council of Churches, 501c(3), serves over 40,000 hot meals a year to the hungry in six kitchens a week in the Attleboro, N. Attleboro, Seekonk, and Mansfield communities.
Food n’ Friends kitchens do not discriminate on the basis of race, age, color, gender, sexual orientation, religion, physical disability, national or ethnic origin, and no proselytizing is permitted.
The kitchens are run with the combined effort of 500 plus volunteers from churches, synagogues, businesses, social services, youth groups, community service organizations and community members, and two part time employees.
Food n’ Friends Kitchens also serve as a contact point between people who might need other services and volunteers trained to give them assistance in finding these services.
