Nutrition for Older People in Maine

Home Delivered Meals

In many areas of the State, volunteers and paid staff at Maine's five area agencies on aging deliver meals to older and disabled people who are homebound and unable to prepare well-balanced meals for themselves. The meal is packaged in a special container to make sure that when it arrives, the meal is hot and ready to eat.

Community Dining Sites

There are over 100 locations throughout the State where older people and disabled adults can enjoy a nutritious mid-day meal. Some of the sites serve meals daily, Monday through Friday. Other sites are open less often. Dining sites also sponsor programs on health, nutrition education and other topics of interest to older people. You can search for dining sites located near you. The community dining sites in this listing are funded in part by the Older Americans Act.
