In case you haven't heard: This year's farm bill was yet another, epic disaster.
You may be wondering why it even matters, but in it lies a deluge of pending legislation -- most of which has little to do with sowing farmland.
Just like WIC and food stamps, the Federal Older Americans Act (OAA) falls under the farm bill -- and it is responsible for the funding of senior services.
Broward Meals on Wheels (BMOW), best-known for its home-delivered meal plans for seniors, receives 65 percent of its annual resources from OAA. The organization was hit with a $207,000 cut for the rest of the fiscal year earlier this month.
Clean Plate Charlie spoke to BMOW's executive director, Mark Adler, about the sequestration's impact on the agency.
