Esty: Don't Cut Meals On Wheels

Apr 21, 2017

Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty is renewing calls by Democrats to support the Meals on Wheels program, a service that would be cut under Trump administration's budget proposal.

Esty, a Democrat from Connecticut's 5th House District, volunteered Wednesday with the Meals on Wheels program aboard a food delivery truck and helped deliver meals to seniors. 

Esty says funding for Meals on Wheels, a program that provides homebound seniors with nutritious meals, is threatened in the White House’s budget plan.

Congressional Democrats are calling for $3.3 billion in funding for the Community Development Block Grant Program next year.
