Some Central Georgia seniors might also feel the effects of the shutdown soon.
Meals on Wheels is funded mostly by the federal government, and it's on a tight budget.
After October 15, if the shutdown continues, directors of programs in Central Georgia plan to send out 30-day notices about reduced or terminated services.
For example, that means more than 1,100 people in Bibb, Jones, Monroe, and Crawford counties are at risk of losing their meals.
Cynthia Gray is one of those people.
She's lived at McAfee Towers, a senior center, for the past two years.
Gray says she depends on the two meals she receives every weekday to survive.
