A message from Meals on Wheels

Contributed By: Charlie Misovye, Volunteer Manager

Deliver Meals on Wheels in your community - As little as 90 minutes twice a month

Autumn is a time for the preservation of life and its basic necessities. Meals on Wheels is asking you to re-discover your purpose and “Turn over a new leaf” this season by becoming a volunteer meal delivery driver.

Help continue our mission of delivering nutritious meals to those in need with the support of community volunteers. Be a part of something bigger than yourself and discover how you can become great by serving others - with only an hour and a half of your time as little as twice a month. Corporate volunteer teams from area businesses are also welcomed to join the Meals on Wheels team.

Give back to the community and volunteer today!

The increased number of clients and meals we are serving means Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana urgently needs volunteer meal delivery drivers throughout Lake and Porter Counties, with the most urgent need in Merrillville, Hammond, Highland, Griffith, Hobart, Miller, Munster, and Whiting.

Volunteers pick up meals at lunchtime at a meeting spot in their community and deliver to local people in need.

Additionally, volunteer van drivers are immediately needed to deliver food containers to designated locations. All van routes originate at our Merrillville facility.

Volunteers are the heart of Meals on Wheels. They establish a relationship with each client. Volunteers are trained to deliver a personal connection and wellness check with every single meal. Turn your compassion into action and become part of the Meals on Wheels team of volunteers and make a difference in your community.

Register now for an upcoming volunteer driver training by contacting Charlie Misovye, Volunteer Manager at (219) 756-3663 or Attendance is limited.

Founded in 1977, Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana delivers 1,700 nutritious meals each day with a wellness check and friendly visit to people in Lake, Porter, Newton, and Jasper counties, with the support of community volunteers.
