Meals on Wheels

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.
