Kristin Coyne, director of the South Side Healthy Active Living Center at the South Side Market House, and Will Lieb of the Beechview center, provide Jim Boyle of Mt. Washington with several days of frozen dinners. The dinners are in place of meals seniors would have at the center.

Senior Center alternative meals are being provided to those seniors who are currently registered for normal congregate meal service.

A pre-packaged (likely frozen) meal will be available through the current food distribution providers that are used through the Allegheny County Area Agency on Aging program. Seniors who are registered for this program have previously identified as being in need and regularly receive these meals.

Pre-packaged meals will be available for take-out only and will be served between 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the South Side Healthy Active Living (Senior) Center on 12th Street.

Meals will also be available at the Healthy Active Centers in:

• Glen Hazel – 945 Rosselle Court, 15207

• Sheraden – 720 Sherwood Avenue, 15204

• Lawrenceville – 4600 Butler Street, 15201

• Homewood – 7321 Frankstown Avenue, 15208

• Hazelwood – 5344 Second Avenue, 15207

Approximately 100 meals per day will be distributed to registered seniors.

Seniors who are not registered for the program but are in need of food or other resources should contact the Allegheny County Area on Aging's SeniorLine (1-800-344-4319).
