Special Programs

 

Meals on Wheels of RI has expanded its services over the years to include much more than providing a nutritious daily meal. Learn about the other senior-related services that the agency offers to elders across the state.

Senior Wish Program:

Since 2005, our Senior Wish program has helped grant the “wishes” of seniors.  We are able to provide typical everyday items such as hand lotions, soap, towels and robes and seasonal items such as fans and air conditioning units or blankets (when available).  Meals on Wheels Mission is to support and “brighten” the lives of Rhode Island’s senior population.  If you are a senior in need of such a “wish”, are over the age of 50, a Rhode Island resident and are  currently receiving services within the Rhode Island Aging Network you may request a “wish”.  Each wish is reviewed by our Senior Wish program coordinator and committee.  You may call us directly to place your “wish”.  Call 401-351-6700.

Meals on Wheels also accepts donations to support the Senior Wish program. If you and or your organization would like to make a donation please call 401-351-6700.

Pet Food Program

Like their owners, the pets that are cherished by our seniors also need food to stay healthy. Appreciating how important it is to both provide seniors and their pets with high quality nutritious meals, MOWRI has partnered with a number of agencies, local companies and friends to make special pet food deliveries to the seniors they serve possible.

Many clients lack the resources needed to keep their companion pets—sometimes a homebound senior’s only “family” member—well-nourished and healthy. The pet food donation from our partners allows us to meet this need while not impacting our routine program operations.

All MOWRI clients are eligible to receive pet food and supplies.  Please contact our office for details. Donations of pet food can be arranged by calling 401.351.6700.

Pet Food Program:

Like their owners, the pets that are cherished by our seniors also need food to stay healthy. Appreciating how important it is to both provide seniors and their pets with high quality nutritious meals, MOWAA created We All Love Our Pets (WALOP) – a national initiative that seeks to unite Meals on Wheels programs across the country in their efforts to keep seniors and their beloved pets well nourished.

MOWRI has partnered with a number of agencies, local companies and friends to make it possible for them to make special pet food deliveries to the seniors they serve. Many clients lack the resources needed to integrate this important activity – keeping companion pets, sometimes a homebound senior’s only “family” member, well nourished and healthy – into routine program operations.

All MOWRI clients are eligible to receive pet food and supplies.  Please contact our office for details. Donations of pet food can be arranged by calling 401.351.6700.
