Ruppersberger to Deliver Meals on Wheels to Local Seniors, Discuss Proposed Cuts to Domestic Funding
(Timonium, MD) – Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD) on Monday will deliver Meals on Wheels to local recipients and call attention to proposed cuts to domestic federal programs that benefit Marylanders. Media are invited as the Congressman helps load vehicles and meets volunteers before departing on a 6-mile delivery route with stops at the homes of four Second District constituents. The first stop is at the home of a constituent who was recently rescued by her Meals on Wheels deliveryman after suffering a traumatic fall.
Meals on Wheels, which is supported by federal funding under the Older Americans Act, serves more than 38,000 Marylander seniors. As the senior population grows, this program is an investment that will save billions in tax dollars by keeping seniors independent and at home longer, rather than in a more expensive healthcare setting.
