Meals on Wheels has received much attention since the White House budget proposed cuts to Community Development Block Grant funding. This is money the federal government gives states to disperse at their discretion.
Each Meals on Wheels program across the country is run independently. Many rely on federal funding, which includes CDBG funding as well as Older Americans Act money. The OAA provides 35 percent of the total funding for Meals on Wheels programs nationally and is part of the Department of Health and Human Services budget, which has not yet been released.

“Thank you for the kindness and support you shared with my father Tony. As his health declined his interactions with other people decreased. But the volunteers brought him companionship and joy. He may not have said it, but he was grateful for your organization and volunteers. Thank you for being so good to him.”Linda
