In a series of reports, ITV News Meridian has been exploring East Sussex County Council and its attempts to balance the books, as the money gets tighter.
As part of cuts to funding to avoid bankruptcy, the council leader told ITV News Meridian that the subsidy for Meals on Wheels may have to end.
The service will continue to operate, but those using the food service would have to pay the full cost.
If the cuts go ahead, customers who are currently eligible for the council's subsidy will go from paying £1- £2 towards their meal to the full price of £6- £7.
The council says difficult decision are having to be made.
It will decide next week whether to cut the funding.
