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
