Since our inception in 1977, our Mission is to deliver nutritious meals to those in need with the support of community volunteers. Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana operates a state of the art kitchen facility located in Merrillville, Indiana. Our Meal Delivery Service is an easy and affordable way to manage your nutritional needs. We look forward to serving you!

Planned by a registered dietitian and prepared fresh daily, the menus are varied and offer you a variety of foods that provide the necessary nutrition to keep you healthy, secure and independent.

Meals are delivered to your door daily! We offer flexible meal delivery options. You can receive a meal five days a week or as little as two days a week. You tell us what is convenient and meets your specific needs.

Our menu follows heart healthy guidelines. For those with special dietary needs, we can accommodate the menu for modified diets, diabetic, cardiac and renal diets as well. For those who have concerns with chewing and swallowing, the meal can be chopped or pureed.

Because of generous donations from our community, we are able to keep the cost of our meals affordable for those who are on a fixed income and on limited budgets. Government and other types of assistance may be available for those unable to pay for the full cost of the meal. Please contact our office for more information.
Services are provided on a non-discriminatory basis and without regard to race, age, color, religion, sex, disability, national origin, ancestry, or status as a veteran.

Fifty percent of the meals provided by Meals on Wheels are provided under Federal and State Funding sources to eligible participants.
