The Mealsite continues to offer daily meals Monday through Friday. However, meals are pick-up only and consist of a sandwich, vegetable, potato chips, fruit, and juice. Donna, the Kitchen Supervisor and her assistant Mike supplement the meals with special desserts, soups, salads, etc. As with the regular meal, a $3 donation is appreciated. Menus vary from week to week, but you may call Edie the Mealsite Manager at (401) 596-7216 on Thursday to find what is being offered for the next week. Reservations are required for meals as Edie must call the caterer with meal counts. You may reserve a meal by calling the Mealsite at (401)596-7216 by Thursday for the next week.
Also, URI through the Town of Westerly has been offering seniors in Westerly, Charlestown, Richmond, Hopkinton, and Exeter a complimentary meal on Fridays. You may access the town website for the link to sign up for delivery of the meal or call the senior center at 596-2404. Volunteers and police officers are delivering the meals between 11 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Please leave your name, address, phone number, and any special instructions. You may also register to pick-up a meal at the senior center.
Thank you to Amy Grzbowski, coordinator of Westerly Emergency Management, the Westerly Police Department, and the corps of volunteers for making this such a major success.
