Mid Coast Hospital donation eliminates Meals on Wheels waitlist in Sagadahoc County, Brunswick, and Harpswell Home Office

Donation to Spectrum Generations will feed 15 people

Through a generous donation from Mid Coast Hospital’s Johnson Health, Hope & Innovation Fund, Spectrum Generations has eliminated the Meals on Wheels waitlist for Sagadahoc County, Brunswick, and Harpswell.

Meals on Wheels is primarily a federally funded program that is offered throughout six counties by Spectrum Generations. While the organization hosts fundraisers and seeks individual donations throughout the year to offset costs above the federal, state, and municipal-directed funds, each year the need grows. Meals on Wheels are provided to older and disabled adults who are homebound and unable to prepare their own meals. The program’s more than 400 volunteers help produce, pack, and deliver meals, and also provide a safety check on recipients. 

“This is a perfect example of how another community-minded organization can help the people living in our service area. The administration of Mid Coast Hospital has seen the importance of Meals on Wheels – that is, the impact proper nutrition can offer homebound individuals – and has stepped forward to support Meals on Wheels throughout Sagadahoc County for the remainder of our fiscal year,” said Spectrum Generations President and CEO, Gerard Queally. 

“Good nutrition is essential for healing to take place. Decreased access to food supply may compromise or prolong the healing process, and many individuals rely on Meals on Wheels to provide adequate nutrition in order to restore health and remain safe in their homes,” said Lois Skillings, President and CEO of Mid Coast–Parkview Health. “We truly value our community partners who help us further our mission of caring for the health of our patients, and are grateful to our gracious donors who allow us to support these efforts.” 

Mid Coast Hospital is a not-for-profit hospital governed by a community Board of Directors. Charitable donations to Mid Coast Hospital help to provide new technology and healthcare services, while supporting the health of the community. Donations to Mid Coast Hospital can be made at www.midcoasthealth/giving, or by calling (207) 373-6064. 

Spectrum Generations is the Central Maine Area Agency on Aging, a 501c(3) whose mission is to help older and disabled adults live healthy, independent lives in their own homes and communities. You can support Meals on Wheels at www.spectrumgenerations.org/donate.
