We have an excellent MoW program here that serves the same meals as our private non profit senior center. I have eaten there and it's pretty great.
Agreed, not all meals on wheels programs are run the same, I'm sure, like public schools, there are some good programs, but the ones I am familiar with are not included.

The food bought by the program is done through vendors, most of which run lunch wagons, (known in my day as roach coaches.) In fact one of the vendors supplied food to the prison system in our state and was unceremoniously fired when it was revealed that they had actual roaches in their food. Then the food is brought to a school kitchen to be whipped up into so called eatable portions. Eatable being problematic at best.

At one time these programs did provide good wholesome food, but today everything is done on the cheap. One example of this is the other day they had what was called a turkey burger for lunch. It was nothing more than a slice of turkey bologna on a bun and it was like eating a rubber band. Most of the vegetables are so over cooked that they are mush. It is to bad that seniors are given such dreg.

Also, we have a senior center that is privately run. They too serve senior meals, but they are not even close to what meals on wheels serve. They actually have good nutritious meals that taste great. I have eaten some of them there and never have complained.

Trump has spent more on vacations in 8 weeks than Obama spent in a year and a half. Add to that the cost of security at Trump Tower so Baron can go to is regular school and that cost is estimated at $83M per year.

Stop the lies,these cuts are for two reasons and they are 58 billion extra $ to the Military as an increase and to spend towards the dang Wall trump promised.

So what is being saved? Not a damn thing period.

P.S. winston how come CindyB hasn't come here with this is a big lie B.S. as she did in my same topic in the Current News earlier?

I'd bet President Trump didn't eat Meals on Wheels lunches either.

What's your view re. Meals on Wheels?

BTW Mikeyy, security is tightened around ALL President's property and family when they become President, and before. The Clinton's converted a barn to a residence in Westchester which they now rent to the government. You can bet the school where the Obama kids go has had increased security over the past 8 years. Obama's Chicago home? That too, even though they rarely use it. So too the new digs the DC rental so the kids can finish school.

Even though your post is totally off topic, what's your point?

They are life saving food supplies for a hell of a lot of old folks that would otherwise die starving.....

This is the last program that should be cut ....

Shame on Donald.....

Yeah, you're right. We should keep the 3 percent contribution for MOW and totally eliminate the SNAP program.

ok i did not know we were contracting out to private food providers. That is insane. We need to hire cooks, servers and dishwashers again. Be cheaper and better food. Heck I saw a documentary where in italy or france the even teach the children table manners. what a concept
