Sliding Scale Program
In January of 2021 New Dawn Meals on Wheels transitioned from a flat-fee rate with a subsidy fund, to a sliding scale program. Meals will now be billed at $5, $7, $10 or $12, dependent on client income. Clients who would have previously accessed the New Dawn Meals on Wheels subsidy fund, will still be able to to do so. For clients in higher income brackets, meal prices will be closer to their actual production cost. This is a necessary change, brought on by rising production costs.
