Pat Mistak is a volunteer driver for Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana, which is kicking off a spring volunteer recruitment campaign.

Meals on Wheels announces a new volunteer campaign, “Spring into Action!”

Swing into Spring by delivering meals to those in the community. The agency provides the meals; volunteers provide the wheels.

The increased number of clients and meals being served means Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana urgently needs volunteer meal delivery drivers throughout Lake and Porter Counties, with the most urgent need in Hammond, Gary, Miller, Hobart, Lake Station, Merrillville, Portage, and Lowell.

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

Register now for an upcoming volunteer driver training by contacting Charlie Misovye, volunteer manager at 219-756-3663 or charlie@mownwi.org. Attendance is limited. The first 10 people to complete their training and first delivery route will receive a McDonald’s $10 gift card.

Founded in 1977, Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana delivers 1,300 nutritious meals each day with a wellness check and friendly visit to people in Lake, Porter, Newton, and Jasper counties.
