Meals on Wheels of RI is pleased to announce that Kevin Millonzi, owner and president of Millonzi Fine Catering and Millonzi’s Kitchen Bar, has been elected as chair of its board of directors for 2019-20.
Millonzi, who has served on the board since fall 2017, was elected at the board’s annual meeting on June 17.
“Kevin’s commitment and dedication to Meals on Wheels of RI and our mission will prove invaluable as we work to increase our impact across the state,” said Meghan Grady, the organization’s executive director. “We are extremely excited to have him and our entire board as strong advocates for our homebound seniors.”
A graduate of Johnson & Wales University, Millonzi has been active in the Rhode Island restaurant and catering industry for more than 20 years. He founded his catering business and opened Millonzi’s Kitchen Bar – both located in West Warwick – in 2011. Millonzi Fine Catering is the exclusive food service provider for the Galilee Beach Club Association, a private club and banquet facility in Narragansett.
He is well known for his philanthropic efforts and community involvement, and often participates in charitable events. Last year, his company sponsored Meals on Wheels of RI’s Bonfire Beach Bash, which raised $38,000 – more than $13,000 over its goal.
He is an active participant in several local and industry-specific organizations, including the Central RI Chamber of Commerce, Arctic Village Association and American Dairy Association Cheese Advisory Panel, and serves as a commissioner on the Johnston Housing Board.
“I am honored to be entrusted with the charge of helping to move Meals on Wheels of RI into its next chapter,” Millonzi said. “For 50 years, we have served our state’s most vulnerable residents, and we will continue our vital work as we prepare to meet a rapidly increasing senior population whose needs will change dramatically in the coming years.”
The board of directors wholeheartedly thanks Harold “Skip” Burns, who will remain on the board, for his years of service and valued contributions to the agency as board chair.
