Meals on Wheels of Rhode Island

Meals on Wheels of Rhode Island offers the state’s only home-delivered meal program that provides fully prepared, complete and nutritious meals delivered to homebound seniors five days per week. Along with each home-delivered meal, program clients receive a vital well-being check and critical opportunity for socialization that address the issues of isolation and loneliness associated with a person’s homebound status. Each weekday, Home-Delivered Meal Program serves about 1,200 homebound seniors statewide, from Woonsocket to Westerly. We serve hundreds more seniors through our Capital City Café Program. We also have a Restaurant (voucher) Program, Pet Food Program to benefit our clients’ beloved pet companions and a Senior Wish Program providing them access to everyday necessities they might not otherwise be able to afford.

It is through the support and generosity of our friends and partners in being delivery heroes that we are able to continue to enact our everyday mission, ensuring thousands of homebound Rhode Islanders are able to remain living healthy, safe and happy lives in their own homes with independence.
