Concerns raised over threat to senior meals in Stanislaus County

Howard Training Center, a non-profit in Ceres, makes and takes 20,000 meals a month to seniors in Stanislaus County through Meals on Wheels and daily lunches served at 13 congregate sites. Though only a small portion of its budget is derived from federal funding, it is still necessary to keep the programs going. Officials are concerned social services cuts in President Trump's budget would cause more hardships for needy seniors.
