According to WABI TV 5, Laura Benedict and the Red Barn, along with a renewable energy company, helped donate $3,000 to the Spectrum Generations Meals on Wheels program.

The Red Barn, on conjunction with Ampion Renewable Energy of Bar Harbor, came together to help raise the funds for the worth-while cause.

The way it worked was for every subscriber who signed up for community solar with Ampion through the Red Barn, Ampion would then set aside $100 for the cause.

WABI says that about 33% of seniors in Maine are currently food insecure and often have to decide between purchasing food or oil for the tank.

The meals on wheels program delivers weekly meals to seniors in need of the extra support. It also provides a opportunity for seniors who live alone to get some much-needed, albeit brief, human contact during the week.
