Capital City Cafes
The Senior meal program provides hot, nutritious meals to seniors throughout Providence. The program has 8 cafes in various locations throughout the city of Providence and one location in Cranston. Dining cafes are open Monday through Friday. All meals meet 1/3 of the dietary reference intake for seniors and are approved by a registered dietitian.
Transportation is available to the closest cafe to those who are 60 years of age and older, or people under the age of 60 who are disabled or receive general public assistance.
