The president of Senior Citizens, Inc. says they stretch whatever funding they get, whether through local, state, federal or private donors.

Further, Meals on Wheels is not one single national organization, but an affiliation of independent operations around the U.S. There are more than 5,000 affiliates, all with different sources of funding, including government appropriations, foundation grants, individual donations, and corporate support. Trump's budget cuts HHS spending by about 16.2 percent, but does not include a line item for the Older Americans Act or Meals on Wheels. As a part of his draft, the President recommended eliminating the Community Development Block Grant, funding that is used to support Meals on Wheels and other programs here in the Valley.

CFCS Sussex County Meals on Wheels participates in the annual March for Meals program each March to help bring awareness of senior hunger and isolation.

About Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee: While initially founded in 1972, the organization grew over the years, and the "PLUS" was eventually added to the name as a way of representing the many other services offered.

Democrats sought Sunday to shame the Trump administration for a budget that takes away resources for programs like Meals on Wheels.

"We can't spend money on programs just because they sound good". In 2015, the program gave USA states, territories, and tribal groups a total of $224,673,820 for home meals.

"And some people think those clients are just poor people", she said, explaining that people of all backgrounds can find themselves in need of meal delivery at least temporarily, like she did after having surgery.

Last Friday and Saturday following the unveiling of Trump's budget, more than $100,000 was donated to Meals on Wheels online.

Some programs will be hit hard by Trump's budget and some might not be severely affected, Bertolette said. But some programs in Albany County, like the Heating Energy Assistance Program, is directly funded by the federal government and is on the chopping block. "I'm nearly going door-to-door", she said.

The organization delivers to those in the community who can't prepare a meal for themselves. The program has seen its online donations spike in the days following the release of the Trump Administration's budget proposal. He's not even cutting it.
