Spectrum Generations clients who receive services – particularly Meals on Wheels and participate in the USDA Commodity Supplemental Food Program – will not experience any delay or disruption in receiving those services. All Spectrum Generations locations will continue operating under normal business hours.
Meals on Wheels is funded primarily through the federal government, with additional assistance provided by generous individual donors, municipalities where we provide services, and through four United Way organizations (Kennebec Valley, Mid Coast Maine, Mid Maine, and Eastern Maine). We also have partnerships with businesses and local farms who supply food to make the meals.
Additional funding is provided through the State of Maine, however we have planned for this situation and are positioned to continue providing all services throughout a long-term state government shutdown, should that be the case.
All USDA Commodity Supplemental Food Program recipients will also be able to continue picking up their 30-lb. free food packs at their usual pickup station. The Commodity Supplemental Food Program is offered through the USDA who distributes both food and administrative funds through participating states.
