Rhode Island Is Losing 9 (Nine) Meals On Wheels Sites

The Fox Point Branch of the Providence Public (???) Library is in the same building where the Fox Point Boys and Girls Club is and also the Fox Point Senior Center.

I was chatting with the library staff, when Lori from the Senior Center came over. We're losing our Meals on Wheels, she said. Also eight other sites have lost their funding.

Lori said they will take money from their own budget to maintain the meals for a time.

If I were Governor, I'd take the money out of my salary to make sure that the elders of Rhode Island were provided this program.

meals on wheels is more than food. the volunteers monitor people who live alone, and get help when someone is sick or doesn't answer the door.
