Mayor Adams has proposed over $12 million dollars in budget cuts to the aging sector’s congregate and home delivered meals programs in a year when costs are greater than ever. Inflation has seen costs rise by over 25% for providers and has created new needs of over $60 million dollars. These cuts are only a fraction of a percent of the overall budget, but represent tens of thousands of meals and financial solvency for older adult centers throughout the city. There are currently 1.7 million older New Yorkers, the city’s fastest growing demographic.
