Meals On Wheels - About our Program
For decades, Southern Maine Agency on Aging has been providing nutritious and delicious home-delivered meals to home bound older adults in York and Cumberland counties.
Our program provides up to five meals each week. Volunteers and Agency staff deliver meals four days a week (No deliveries on Wednesdays) and generally arrive between 10:30am-12:30pm. Meals are delivered either frozen or pre-heated based on client request or need.
Our program is more than just a meal; it is also a wellness check and friendly visit. Volunteers and staff are trained to make sure that clients are safe when they make their delivery. This brief check helps to provide peace of mind to our clients and their families.

There is no income eligibility requirement for Meals on Wheels. We recommend a $3.50 per meal donation in order to keep the program going. However, donations of all sizes are welcome and no one will ever be turned away if unable to contribute at the suggested rate.
