Nutrition Services / Menus
part of Eastern Area Agency on Aging's Nutrition Program, noontime
meals are served to persons 60 and older in Penobscot, Piscataquis,
Hancock and Washington counties, either through Meals on Wheels, in an
EAAA Community Café, or 3-D Catering.
The meals are delicious, and well-balanced, meeting one third of the Recommended Daily Allowance of nutrients. The monthly menus are varied offering such healthy favorites as macaroni and cheese, roast turkey, and fish chowder.
The Nutrition Program provides good nutrition to seniors who otherwise might not eat a balanced diet. Some seniors can simply no longer make a meal, some are living alone now and have no desire to cook for one. And variety is difficult to achieve when making small meals.
Whatever the reason, the Nutrition Program fits the bill. The Meals on Wheels clients always have smiles on their faces for the volunteer delivery driver. And the EAAA Community Cafés are full of good food and good cheer.
The guidelines for becoming a 3-D Catering customer are:
- You must be on an established delivery route
- OR be willing to pick-up the meals
- You must pay $4 per meal: minimum purchase at least five (5) meals required
That is all it takes to start enjoying a variety of delicious entrees.
Each 5-pack of meals comes with:
- 5 rolls
- 5 pats of butter
- 5 desserts
- a quart of 2% milk

Community Cafe’s are more than just a place to go to enjoy a delicious meal. Many Cafe’s have Bingo games, music, card games, and auctions to make the day fun. People come to the Cafe’s to visit with other diners and catch up on local news as well.
We welcome everyone into our cafes, and hope seniors will bring friends and family so they can all enjoy lunch together.
Cost is $4 per meal. Seniors pay by donation - $4 recommended.
