Meals On Wheels program faces funding cuts

Local seniors may soon have to find another way to get their next meal. Meals on Wheels, a local program that provides food to many seniors in Franklin County is in jeopardy of losing funds due President Trump’s proposed budget. According to 10TV, LifeCare Alliance, the leading Franklin County distributor for Meals On Wheels estimates 1,000 seniors will not have access to the program if cuts are enacted. Currently, their program delivers meals to 5,025 seniors in Franklin County, according to Chuck Gehring with LifeCare Alliance.
