Hunger to Hope dinner event on May 22 at Lake Pearl Wrentham will feature an acoustic band, live auctions and a grand raffle.
In the midst of our busy day-to-day lives, it can be easy to miss – or overlook – the things that are happening right around us. It can be easy to forget that there are individuals and families in our community who lack food and basic resources.

AAIC is the leading agency in the region for providing year-round, emergency meals through their Food n’ Friends program. Last year they served over 20,000 hot meals at Daily Kitchens and Family Cafés. For some of the guests, this may be the only opportunity they have to eat on that day. In addition, they served 3,500 bagged lunches in the summertime to children in Attleboro, Norton and North Attleboro.
“It is important to recognize that assisting our vulnerable neighbors is only possible with the help of a core of 500 volunteers,” says Lisa Piscatelli, executive director of AAIC. “Generous support of area individuals, organizations, houses of worship, and businesses is also vital in these efforts.”
