A lot has been in the news recently on how President Trump's proposed budget will affect the Meals on Wheels program. Mecosta County Commission on Aging Meals and Health Coordinator Shawn Sredersas says she's taking a wait and see approach.
“I have learned from past experiences that what they say is going to happen and what actually happens sometimes is two different things. So I never really cry over spilled milk until I actually see the spilled milk.”
Sredersas says although they receive about $77,000 a year in federal funding for their meals on wheels program, much of that is from the Older Americans Act which is not being targeted for cuts in the new budget.
