Help WV’s Seniors

Tell lawmakers to support WV seniors and fund important services like meal delivery

Many of West Virginia’s seniors live alone and these meals are so important, not just for nourishment, but for interaction with people. Our parents and/or grandparents deserve better, but Senior Centers can’t continue to survive without an increase in the meal reimbursement rate. The average cost of a senior meal is approximately $8.87 but the centers are only reimbursed $5.25. What restaurant could keep its doors open losing over $3 for every meal served? If your local Senior Center closed, who will be that knock on the door with a smile and meal for seniors in your community? #SupportWVSeniors
