March for Meals

In celebration of March For Meals and to raise awareness about senior hunger in the state, Mayor Scott Avedisian delivered meals with Meals On Wheels to homebound seniors at Warwick Terrace. Here he greets terrace resident Helen Ball. This was the mayor’s fourth year participating in the campaign, which features a number of city officials across the state delivering meals. Executive director of Meals on Wheels Rhode Island, Heather Amaral joined Avedisian on his visits. According to Meals on Wheels of Rhode Island, 36,390 seniors are struggling with hunger, but only 9,831 (27 percent) are able to receive help through the program due to low funding.
