The article features a change in the operation of Meals on Wheels, a national program that delivers food to the elderly and disabled, in the U.S. According to the author, aging baby boomers are insisting upon it, and the financial dilemma posed by the growing ranks of the elderly in need of food will necessitate it. The Meals of Wheels Association of America is drafting a blueprint for the change.
