Meals on Wheels programming has been in the spotlight on various national media platforms after the President's proposed 'Budget Blueprint' to Congress known as the 'skinny budget'. The proposed budget shows cuts to non-defense discretionary (NDD) programs, which fund various programs, including the Older Americans Act (OAA) programs.
Older Americans Act Funding supports nutrition programs, meals-on-wheels, in-home services, transportation, caregiver support and more. Like other Meals on Wheels programs across the county, Foodnet relies on a portion of this funding. However, the degree of local impact is still unclear at this time. We anticipate the release of more details in the coming months.
