MCH Meals on Wheels only  Meals on Wheels program  serving Knox County

In light of Spectrum Generations’ recent press release, MCH, Inc. would like to issue a clarification….

MCH Meals on Wheels, based in Rockland, remains the only Meals on Wheels program serving Knox County. We are currently delivering meals to 141 seniors and disabled individuals and are continuing to add new recipients, without a waiting list. Following guidelines from the Maine CDC, on March 16th we eliminated face to face contact between participants and volunteer drivers. This is difficult for our participants and volunteers who rely on the face to face visit as much as the meal so we are calling recipients to check in on them. As they identify needs our staff is assisting them or finding partners who can help. We are fortunate and grateful that we have such a strong group of volunteers to continue all meal deliveries. We are not currently recruiting new volunteers. As has always been our practice, and especially during the coronavirus pandemic, MCH Meals on Wheels is committed to serve everyone in need, without a waiting list. Financial contributions are helpful. You may make a contribution on-line at mchinc.org.

To receive meals or refer someone in need anywhere in Knox County please contact Katie Tarbox at 207-701-9641 or ktarbox@mching.org.
