“The last across-the-board increase in senior meal funding was in 2014, and that was to the tune of a paltry 25 cents for a regular meal and 50 cents for a kosher meal. Five years later, with more and more seniors depending on their neighborhood center for nutrition, we know that the urgency to invest in senior center meals has grown. At today’s Aging Hearing on the Executive Budget, we renewed our call to the Administration to fully invest in senior center meals and kitchen salaries. To build a fair City for all ages, we have to stop playing games with senior funding.”
