1. What changes have been instituted since the COVID-19 pandemic became an issue for Rhode Island? Amos House serves a community that traditionally has less access to options in food, housing and personal care. Our soup kitchen has not stopped or reduced meals provided. Quite the opposite. We have actually added an evening meal to our service. In order to offer the safest option for our community, we have moved to offering all meals to go, which greatly increases our costs.
