Highlands Meals on Wheels announced Thursday it will not be delivering meals until further notice because of damage caused by a broken waterline in the organization's kitchen in Harrison.

The organization provides food to about 120 people in Harrison, Brackenridge and Tarentum, President Joanne Diller said.

The organization — which normally delivers meals on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays — has not delivered meals since Jan. 1 because of the weather. It had expected to resume Friday.

Later in the day Thursday, the organization was working on alternatives that may allow food deliveries to resume on Monday, said Beverly Carnahan, secretary and co-director.
