Across the South Hills – June 19

Published Jun 19, 2013 at 6:38 am (Updated Jun 14, 2013 at 3:35 pm)


As part of an effort to broaden the range of meal delivery options available to our neighboring communities, Meals on Wheels of Peters Township is planning to extend services to the Bridgeville area in the near future. Senior citizens who have difficulty shopping or cooking their own meals are encouraged to call for information and to sign up for service. There are no specific age or income requirements. The cost for a week of hot meals is $15. Each day’s delivery includes soup, a hot entrée with meat, vegetable and starch, as well as a salad, dessert and milk. For $18/week, a client can receive all the hot meal items, plus a sandwich, juice and cookie for a second meal. Diabetic meals are available, and Meals on Wheels can also accommodate other special needs, such as for chopped meals and some allergies.

As the program takes on new clients, the organization will be in need of volunteer drivers to deliver meals to the expanded areas, in addition to the areas that it already serves. Volunteers pick up meals from the kitchen, located above the Peters Township Fire Department, at 245 East McMurray Road, at about 10:30 a.m., and normally return from their routes by 12:30 p.m.

Anyone interested in receiving Meals on Wheels or volunteering should call 724-969-1000 or email For more information, visit
