The funding is now being threatened by the federal government, with a proposed cut of $6.2 billion from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, $3 billion of which now funds the Community Development Block Grant programs, a portion of which goes to Meal on Wheels, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune.

"It's more than we would ever expect or even think about", she said. "We stay in it one month out of three", Judy Schaefer, Meals on Wheels coordinator, said. And people are signing up to volunteer like never before.

Meals on Wheels of New Canaan has been delivering nutritious meals to those in need in our community since 1972. "So this is critical".

The senator's Meals on Wheels tour is part of a weekend of events he's scheduled, an assertive effort by the senator to keep the focus on the legislative battles he will confront rather than any others that may be looming on the legal front.

The Virginia non-profit reported receipt of $248,347 in grant funds in 2015, specifically to run the National Research Center on Nutrition and Aging, not to deliver meals.
