Federal Sequestration in March had cut over $85,000 from the Spectrum Generations Meals on Wheels program. Seven months after the government cuts, fundraising, donations have restored the program to full strength.Back in March, when the cuts first took place, Spectrum Generations scaled back it’s Meals on Wheels program to feed seniors who have trouble getting out. They scaled back the twice-weekly visits to seniors, taking them a week’s wort of frozen meals during a single trip instead.

This past week Spectrum Generations announced that with donations and fundraising efforts, full service of their Meals on Wheels program has been reinstated.

Spectrum Generations delivers 300,000 meals each year to homebound seniors in 128 communities in six counties as part of the national Meals on Wheels program.

Including serving 200 people a day from Waterville’s Muskie Center and 800 people a day to homebound seniors in Kennebec, Knox, Lincoln, Sagahadoc, Somerset and Woldo counties.
