Capital City Café Program

 

More mobile seniors may participate in Meals on Wheels of RI’s Capital City Café Program, which offers socialized dining at dining sites (cafés) throughout the Providence area.

In typical operation, the program provides hot, lunch-time meals that meet one-third of a senior’s recommended daily dietary intake, Monday through Friday.

While some café sites have reopened for in-person dining, others remained closed due to the pandemic. Dining days and hours are subject to change.

Transportation is available to the closest café to those who are 60 years of age and older, or people under the age of 60 who live with disabilities or receive general public assistance. For more information on transportation, please contact:

RIDE Program at 1-800-479-6902

or

LogistiCare at 1-855-330-9131.

 

Who may participate in the program?

To attend lunch at one of the dining sites, you must be at least 60 years of age, or live with disabilities and/or live in a housing facility where a meal program is not operated.

Is there a cost to attend lunch?

We ask for a $3.00 suggested, voluntary, donation per meal to help us cover the full cost of the meal. You will never be denied a meal if you do not make a donation.

What are meals like?

Each meal will meet one-third of a senior’s recommended daily dietary intake and include a soup or salad, main dish, starch, vegetable, and dessert. You will also be able to enjoy coffee, tea, milk, and juice.
