The budget balancing plan proposed last week by the Hogan Administration directly deals with the now chronic problem of expenditures exceeding revenues – by simply scaling back spending further after more than a decade of fiscal constraints. But limiting spending and taxes is not the most important function of state government. The cost of this budget plan is an expansion of another important ‘deficit’ – the growing inability of the state to meet it’s core responsibilities – providing for the health, education, well-being and safety of people and communities...

Two Baltimore women, Earnestine McCollum and Beatrice Strouse, had a common conviction — nutritious meals for the aging was a genuine need in the Baltimore area. In 1960, they replicated a meal delivery program that originated in London, England. On October 3rd that same year, the first 10 Meals on Wheels clients were served a hot meal lovingly prepared and delivered by dedicated volunteers. Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland is now one of the oldest nonprofit, home-delivered meal programs in the country, serving more than 700,000 meals annually. Meals on Wheels' approach, to provide nutritious meals, personal contact, community connections and safety-net services, distinguishes them from other home delivered meal programs. Today, Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland is one of the largest Meals on Wheels programs in the country thanks to the sustained commitment of their volunteers, staff and donors who live and work in the local communities where they serve. Each day, more than 27 Meals on Wheels vans and 1,700 volunteers hit the road to deliver “more than a meal.” Visit Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland's Website.
