  • Don't allow the disparity in funding for senior meals to continue, @NYCMayor! NYC currently funds meals at a rate that is 20% LESS than the national average - this is not fair and is not sustainable for our incredible nonprofit providers. #MoreThanAMeal

 

  • Funding that's 20% lower than the national average for something as important as a nutritious meal for seniors cannot continue - It's time the city invest $12.1 million towards ending elder hunger. #MoreThanAMeal

 

  • I support @liveonny's call for the city to invest $12.1 million in meals for seniors. To a senior a senior center lunch or home delivered meal means socialization, health, peace of mind, community connections & more. It's #MoreThanAMeal

 

  • Funding that's 20% lower than the national average in a city w/ a high cost of living? Something doesn't add up. It's time the city invest $12.1 million in vital funding for senior meals because in reality it's: #MoreThanAMeal

 

  • Did you know that in 2017 the city contributed $26 million less than the national average for meals for seniors? This is why I'm joining @liveonny and advocates in calling on the city to increase funding for senior meals #MoreThanAMeal

 

  • You can make New York a better place to age, @NYCMayor! By investing $12.1 million in meals for seniors the city will take a huge step forward in ending hunger for seniors #MoreThanAMeal

 

By using our collective voice we CAN make New York a better place to age. Thank you for supporting this year's advocacy efforts!
