ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- Federal budget cuts may leave area senior citizens who rely on the Meals on Wheels program hungry.

According to officials with Allen County's Aging and In-Home Services, they have been instructed to cut cost by seven to ten percent beginning October 1, when the new fiscal year gets underway.

At this time, the agency is doing everything it can to meet the growing need.

The Meals on Wheels program served about 161,000 meals last year to nearly 2,000 clients.
