St. Pauls Meals on Wheels

COVID-19 UPDATE: Meals on Wheels is not only operating, we are expanding to provide food for anyone who is 18 or older and is in need of assistance.

For pricing and contact information, visit their website by clicking here!


St. Paul Meals on Wheels is a ministry founded in 1971 by members of the former St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church who saw a need in the community, among the elderly citizens, for daily, home-delivered meals, at a reasonable cost. They traveled to the North Side of Pittsburgh to observe and help with a Meals on Wheels program already established in that area. This experience informed the founding of St. Paul Meals on Wheels program and for the last 47 years, a hot dinner meal has been prepared in that same church kitchen, five days a week. In addition, a lunch is prepared and delivered along with the hot dinner meal. The meals have been delivered to the Meals on Wheels clients in all types of weather. Throughout the history of St. Paul Meals on Wheels it is estimated that over 600,000 meals have been prepared and delivered by hundreds of volunteers.

The St. Paul Meals on Wheels ministry has remained through the efforts of many dedicated volunteers and continues to faithfully provide home-cooked meals to residents of Pitcairn, Monroeville, Trafford, Level Green, Wall, and Wilmerding.

Mr. Gary's Walk

Gary Agate, PitCare co-founder and president of the board, set out on a mission to walk 1,300 miles from Pitcairn, PA to Orlando, FL. He began his journey on September 2, 2019 and continued to walk for 74 days (with days of rest here and there).

His goal all along had been to inspire the community of Pitcairn, especially the kids, that you can do anything you set your minds too - to inspire them to set goals and reach for their dreams - it will take hard work, but with perseverance, determination, and faith you can accomplish what may seem impossible!

On November 16, 2019, Gary achieved his goal of walking to Florida when we he crossed into Orlando, welcomed by friends and family to celebrate this huge achievement with him.

Along Gary's journey, funds were raised to support the mission and vision of PitCare. To date, a total of approximately $95,000 has been raised and funds continue to trickle.

HUGE thank you to all those who supported through words of encouragement, prayers, hospitality, meals, and donations. We are grateful and humbled by your generosity.

Pitcare Community Testimonials

PitCare Inc. is a valuable asset to Pitcairn. PitCare has and continues to help many families in this financially depressed community. The youth in Pitcairn are supported to reach their life goals by this organization. I personally have a vested interest in PitCare. My family and I have been assisted by this organization. I am extremely grateful for their care and support.

Today I was at the door as the children were leaving our summer reading program and telling each one to have a good weekend and see them on Monday. We had packed each child a weekend snack bag filled with healthy treats and put one in each of their PitCare bags as they were leaving.One little boy took two steps out and turned around, came back, threw his arms around my waist and gave me a huge hug. No words were needed. I love knowing we are making a difference to our children here in Pitcairn.
