payment was mandatory and the volunteer delivery person kept the money. Unfortunately, both the elderly woman and volunteer are recently deceased. Should a national investigation occur? In addition, the meals shown on TV from our local MOW recently look very bad - all gray food. Are the budget cuts pending for Meals on Wheels a good or bad idea?

Thanks for this info! I found out today that MOW in my city regularly asks for $7.00/meal donation, but does not pressure the recipient. The food is overcooked and bad looking.
How can trump cut something that is funded by donations as MOW is. Believe me I know.
trump want to cut Social Security that would have more people needing MOW just to have a bite to eat.
My estimated Social Security monthly amount has decreased $100, even though income increased steadily. I'll work forever.
Right: Greed should not be excused.
Also, financially it's less expensive to feed the elderly than to pay for rehabilitation when they go without eating.
Seeing that children have food is a national obligation.
I agree morally and because of the tons of food USA throws out every day. Stores in my metro began locking dumpsters when food was tossed and pressing charges on workers who gave away sny of it. Bad show.
Thanks for your comment. I agree it's an evil thing.
I think I agree. My church has two food pantries in the county and an emergency food program, along with a community center to help with healthcare and other support services. Documentation of qualification for programs is strict, though.
Sound like no one is supposed to pay, but a donation is accepted in most states.
