About

Southern Rhode Island Volunteers (SRIV) is Seeking Meals on Wheels (MOW) Volunteers

MOW drivers and substitute drivers are needed in the Washington County Area. This is a very flexible volunteer opportunity that may be perfect for retired or partially-retired seniors who want to give back to their community. Volunteers can commit to a weekly schedule or be on SRIV’s substitute call list in the event that a regular driver can’t fulfill their shift.

MOW of Rhode Island is the only program of its size in the state that provides home-delivered meals to frail, elderly and disabled adults who without the program would be at risk for nutritionally deficient diets. Without volunteers MOW would not be available to local Washington County residents leaving many low-income or at-risk residents vulnerable and isolated.

Deliveries take place Monday through Thursday with shifts starting between 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Drivers have between 4 to 10 stops to make depending on their route. There are currently five routes: Kingston, Peace Dale, South Kingstown, North Narragansett and South Narragansett available directly through Southern Rhode Island Volunteers.

Requirements: Must have a valid driver’s license, good driving record and pass a required background check. SRIV volunteers are required to fill out a volunteer registrationn form and report their hours on a monthly basis.

If this opportunity interests you, please email Lindsay Tanner, SRIV’s Retired Senior Volunteer Program Director, at lptanner@southernrivol.org or call SRIV at 401-552-7661.
