Wednesday, July 12, 2017
San Francisco, CA – Mayor Edwin M. Lee today announced that his proposed two-year budget will feature $37.4 million for nutrition services, including $19.2 million for home-delivered meal programs, benefitting seniors, people with disabilities and families in San Francisco.
“With proposed federal cuts threatening many of these home-delivered meal programs, we have a duty to fully fund them at the local level,” said Mayor Lee. “By providing support for their operations, we are ensuring that these meal delivery programs maintain much-needed services for our residents. The organizations not only deliver food and groceries, but their employees offer conversation, engagement and warm smiles to their clients.”
