Since 1969, Meals on Wheels of Rhode Island has worked to alleviate food insecurity and social isolation among at-risk older adults. We help seniors stay healthy, safe and happy at home. Learn more about us.
We just delivered our 20-millionth meal!
What We Provide
We deliver nutritious medically therapeutic and culturally responsive meals to Rhode Island homebound seniors each weekday. Our meals provide one third of our client’s recommended daily dietary intake.
Volunteer home visits and our senior cafe dining programs create opportunities for seniors to socialize and help alleviate their feelings of isolation and loneliness. Our Pet Food Program supports seniors’ ability to care for their pets, who provide vital companionship.
With each home-delivered meal, clients receive a critical safety check to ensure their well-being. And our Senior Wish Program provides seniors with gift packages of everyday necessities and seasonal essentials during winter holidays.
