We are deeply grateful to Kerri and Ray and to all the wonderful people who shared so much to make this profound impact on ending hunger in the Greater Attleboro Area.
The Attleboro Area Council of Churches Kids Summer Café program is designed to combat childhood hunger when school is not in session. Summer brings a hunger crisis for many families in our area. To help prevent this, the Kids Summer Café provides free, bagged lunches to all children, three times a week at four local playgrounds.

The funds raised by this campaign will allow us to expand the Kids Summer Café program; adding a new site in North Attleboro in 2017 and will provide meals for an additional 4,081 children!

This program would not be possible without the dedication and support of many hundreds of volunteers and each and every donation. Our sincere thanks to the community for their contributions to help end childhood hunger.

We extend a welcome to people of all backgrounds, all houses of worship, and caring businesses to deepen their commitment to fighting hunger by volunteering in the Attleboro Area Council of Churches Food n’ Friends Kitchens, Family Cafés and Kids Summer Cafés and supporting true change, beginning here in our own community.

For more information please call Attleboro Area Council of Churches at (508) 222-2933 or email aaccoffice@verizon.net
