Our President & CEO, Gerard Queally, has recently had an Op-Ed published on the topic and we are asking for support from our Advocacy Network to reach out to members of the legislator in support of this bill.
LD 692 – a Resolution to Provide Meals to Homebound Individuals will provide ongoing funding to provide meals to additional homebound individuals and to be used to leverage all federal funds available.
At Spectrum Generations, we believe food is preventative medicine, and access to it provides for better quality health outcomes, reduced health care costs, and improved quality of life. A more sustainable and dependable solution is needed. LD 692 will add $500,000 annually to the State of Maine’s contribution to Meals on Wheels. This would result in more than 65,000 meals delivered to approximately 520 (or more) older and disabled homebound adults having access to healthy food each year.
Please contact your state representative or senator, and urge them to vote yes on LD 692 to help increase access to healthy food for older and disabled adults.
