program of Attleboro Area Interfaith Collaborative

AttleboroAIC | Food n’ Friends continues to provide essential services

March 24, 2020

Dear Friends:

Let us begin by expressing our hope that you are well during this unprecedented time of uncertainty. We recognize the service disruptions due to the public health crisis of COVID-19. We also want to assure you that the Attleboro Area Interfaith Collaborative continues to operate in a manner that protects and serves our employees, volunteers, and clients.

While the City of Attleboro closed our office building temporarily, our AAIC staff continues to be at work remotely. Even in light of the Statewide Stay-At-Home Advisory, AAIC / Food n’ Friends is able to stay open (designated as an essential service provider).

We remain committed to ensuring that the needs of our community are met. However, please be aware of the following changes to our programming. All meals are being served “to-go” as noted until further notice:

Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 4:30pm
First Baptist Church, 118 South Main Street, Attleboro
(drive-thru and walk-up available)

Tuesdays at 4:30pm
First Baptist Church, 52 North Main Street, Mansfield

Wednesdays at 4pm
First Baptist Church, 75 Park Street, North Attleboro

Saturdays at 11am
Centenary United Methodist Church, 15 Sanford Street, Attleboro

  • Meals are free and available to all
  • We ask that you give ample room alongside your neighbor while you pick up your meal
  • If you are not feeling well, please ask a friend / family member / neighbor to pick the meal up for you
  • As we are made aware of any schedule changes, they will be posted at AttleboroAIC.org

Thank you to the emergency personnel, health workers, community leaders, and hunger helpers for meeting essential needs.

Thank you to the public for doing your part to flatten the curve and to support each other in kind ways.

Yours in faith and fellowship,

Taryn Degon
President

Lisa Piscatelli
Executive Director
