ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Seniors who depend on the ‘Meals on Wheels’ program in the City of St. Louis will receive less meals this week.

Seniors who use the program would normally receive five frozen meals delivered weekly, but because of budget issues, many of them will only get three meals delivered until July 5.

Currently, there are more than 1,700 seniors in the City of St. Louis who depend on the program and almost 1,000 of them will see their meals slashed this week.

Anyone with questions is encouraged to contact the St. Louis Area Agency on Aging at 314-612-5918.
