Home-Delivered Meal Program
The Home-Delivered Meal Program was established in 1969 and is the only nonprofit meal delivery program serving the entire state of Rhode Island.
Providing a lunchtime meal on weekdays to qualified, homebound Rhode Islanders, this program serves 1,200 seniors daily and in 2020 served 2,748 individuals. Much more than just a meal, the Home-Delivered Meal Program also provides clients a vital well-being check and critical opportunity for socialization to address the issues of isolation and loneliness associated with a person’s homebound status.
