BELFAST — Rob McCann, of Rep. Jared Golden’s staff, joined Gerard Queally, CEO and president of Spectrum Generations, and Amy Smith, a volunteer Meals on Wheels driver, Tuesday, March 22, to deliver meals to homebound elderly and disabled adults in Waldo County as part of the March for Meals weeklong celebration.

The Spectrum Generations Meals on Wheels program provides nutritionally balanced hot meals for homebound elderly and disabled adults who have no one to prepare a meal for them. Meals on Wheels are delivered to participants’ front doors by Spectrum Generations’ volunteers and staff. In addition to providing food security, these meal deliveries are also an opportunity for safety checks and human interaction for otherwise isolated Mainers. March for Meals is a weeklong event designed to bring awareness to the program, and to highlight food security issues in Maine.

“The good people at Spectrum Generations Meals on Wheels are working hard to ensure that homebound seniors and people with disabilities in Waldo County are receiving the food and support they need,” said Golden. “Not only are people like Gerald and Amy helping people in Waldo keep food on the table, they are offering wellbeing checks and a friendly face. I’m glad my team had the opportunity to support their work and I thank them for the vital services they’re providing.”
