  1. You can make New York a #FairCity4AllAges, @NYCMayor! By investing $20 million in Senior Center meals & $15M in home-delivered meals the city will take a huge step forward in ending elder hunger & ensuring a livable wage for Senior Center staff!

  2. Funding that's 20% lower than the national average for something as important as a nutritious meal for seniors cannot continue, @NYCMayor .

    It's time for a #FairCity4AllAges - that means investments in meals for seniors & living wages for Senior Center staff.

  3. I support @liveonny's call for NYC to invest in a #FairCity4AllAges!

    This means:

    🍴$20M for Senior Centers meals & $15M for meals for homebound seniors

    ⚒️$10M for infrastructure supports at Senior Centers

    🚫Cuts to DFTA

  4. The City's Aging budget is STILL less than 1/2 of 1% of the overall budget - with a growing senior population, this just isn't fair. It's time for a #FairCity4AllAges by the Administration & City Council making meaningful investments in senior services!
