We Support Meals on Wheels

February 28, 2018

A measure to protect funding for the Meals on Wheels program gets a public hearing Thursday.

Meals on Wheels is a non-profit, volunteer-based service that delivers nutritious meals to people who are elderly or disabled, homebound, and unable to prepare their own meals.

Senate Bill 154 calls for an increase in the fee schedule for Meals on Wheels provided under the Connecticut home-care program for the elderly.

The increase will “reflect reasonable costs of providers and minimize any copayments incurred by participants in the program.”

Here’s how you can speak out on behalf of this bill to urge its passage into state law.
