(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Cuts in federal spending could derail some Meals on Wheels programs.

According to USA Today, if Congressional domestic spending cuts are allowed take effect on March 1st, the program faces an estimated 5 percent reduction in funding.

Meals on Wheels executives say the cut could translate into 19 million fewer meals across the U.S., causing 200,000 dependent seniors to lose their meal service.

Senior Services in Kalamazoo told Newschannel 3 that their Meals on Wheels program is already at capacity, but that it is able to keep up with demand at this point.

They do worry that any reduction would have an impact on the people they serve, however.
