OWOSSO, Mich. (AP) - After more than 50 years, a hospital has stopped delivering meals to homes in Shiawassee County.

Memorial Healthcare told people to contact the Shiawassee Council on Aging for meals, The Argus-Press reported.

The council’s executive director, Cynthia Mayhew, said she had no information on the change.

Kevin Davis, associate vice president of operations at Memorial, said the hospital was providing one meal per day to about 20 people. Most people in the program had been patients at the Owosso hospital.

The Council on Aging “has the best resources to meet the mobile needs in our county,” food and nutrition manager Jason Jensen said in a letter to meal recipients.

Jensen said the change will allow Memorial to focus on health care needs in the community.

The Council on Aging delivers food to people 60 and older who have physical or mental impairments, the newspaper said.
