Nutrition & Companionship

John, 74, finds companionship as well as a good meal at the Saturday Food n’ Friends kitchen in Attleboro, a program of the Attleboro Area Interfaith Collaborative.

It also helps him stretch the very limited budget of a senior living on a limited income.

“You know, Social Security doesn’t go that far at all,” says the Attleboro resident.

Every Saturday, he joins others for lunch at the Centenary United Methodist Church.

“The food is good and it’s just down the street so I figured why not,” he says.

But nutrition isn’t the only reason the single man enjoys lunching at the church. There’s also the opportunity to chat and socialize.

“You can shoot the breeze for a while and get a meal, it’s very pleasant,” he adds.
