Your DGB for today is to help feed senior Americans through the Meals on Wheels Program.
Recent comments by Trump’s Budget Director, Mick Mulvaney, suggest that budget cuts have the potential to have adverse effects on the Meals on Wheels program. The President of Meals on Wheels has been quoted as saying “The problem with a skinny budget is it is lean on details.” Our crystal ball is in the shop so we have no idea if they are going to lose funding or not (uncertainty is an underlying theme of this presidency), but we aren’t ones to just sit around and wait for bad things to happen.
Today we are asking you to help Meals on Wheels in one of two ways. Consider volunteering for Meals on Wheels in a way that works for your schedule. It can be a one time thing, a once a month gig, or maybe you have time to do it every week! Some locations even need help in their kitchens preparing food. Check their website and find a volunteering opportunity that works for you. If you are hard-pressed for time, you can visit their site for other ideas for advocacy, shopping, or donations.
Let’s work together to make sure our seniors are fed and our hearts are full.
