Furry Friends Food Bank

Eastern Area Agency on Aging is dedicated to preserving the special bond between older adults and their pets by providing them with monthly, pre-packaged bags of pet food and litter through our Furry Friends Food Bank (FFFB) program.

Statistics show that pets are a vital source of companionship and love for many older adults. Older adults living Independently, who have pets, tend to have better physical health and mental well-being. They are more active, cope better with stress, and have better overall health than their counterparts who do not own a pet.

At EAAA, we take pride in ensuring older adults and their pets stay together. Many low-income older adults are unable to access nutritious food for their pets and resort to sharing their own meals with them.

FFFB is committed to providing supplemental pet food to qualifying program participants, so they don’t need to worry about how to obtain or afford nutritious food for their pets from month to month.

FFFB relies on donations, fundraisers, and grant money from the Sewall Foundation, Maine Community Foundation, Meals on Wheels of America, PetSmart Charities, the Humane Society of the United States, and Chewy.
