Meals on Wheels

The Nutritional Services Department offers a variety of home-style meals and desserts daily, as well as a fresh salad bar. Meals are served in the dining room for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Whether you are a patient, a visitor or just looking for a fast and affordable lunch option, you're always welcome in the Scheurer Hospital Dining Room.

Meals on Wheels

In 1975, The Meals on Wheels program began with the help of a government grant. Once the funds ran out, the community stepped in and the Interfaith Council of Church Women took over the program.

Lunchtime meals—made up of a main entree, vegetable, bread or roll, salad, dessert or fruit, and milk—are prepared by Scheurer Hospital's Nutritional Services staff. The staff takes great care to observe portion size, special diets and unique preferences. Dietary supplements are available at no additional cost.

Meals are available Monday through Friday. Weekday holiday deliveries are also available.

Meals are delivered within a four-mile radius of the Pigeon area by volunteers. Customers who live outside the designated area can have a family member or friend pick up their meals. To meet the needs of its customers, the program is very flexible and allows for multiple delivery options:

  • Customers can receive meals daily at lunch time Monday through Friday.
  • Multiple meals may be delivered on one day so daily deliveries do not have to be made.
  • Meals may be delivered only on selected days.

Everyone is welcome to participate. There are no eligibility requirements for the Meals on Wheels Program. Customers are charged $3 per meal. Charges are billed on a monthly basis. If two individuals living in the same household request a meal, a 10 percent discount of the total monthly balance is given. To sign up for Meals on Wheels or for more information, please call 989.453.5262.
