Each year, Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana delivers more than 419,000 meals to those who are homebound, elderly, ill or disabled. Each day, individuals who otherwise are not able to shop or cook have access to a nutritionally balanced meal. Our mobile society has forced many to move far from family. Consequently, for many of our clients, our volunteers may be the only person visiting that client. Meals on Wheels provides a sense of security to the client and family knowing that someone will provide a check and friendly conversation; reducing isolation and providing human contact. Meals on Wheels is able to provide independence, preserve dignity and allow seniors to age in place.
We rely on donations from individuals, corporations, grantors and foundations to meet our community’s nutritional and financial needs. Your support helps keep our local Meals on Wheels program active; and is critical to fulfilling our Mission.
Because of your continued and generous support, individuals in need of the home delivered meal service are given an opportunity to stay healthy, secure and independent knowing that Meals on Wheels is there. Your generosity will make a difference in someone’s life.
If you would like a monthly or quarterly pledge statement to support our Mission, please contact our office at 219-756-3663.
Meals on Wheels does not exchange or sell donor information.
