In a combined effort to better serve the people of La Porte County, representatives from La Porte County Meals on Wheels and La Porte Meals on Wheels announced that the two organizations merged. Meals on Wheels’ caring community volunteers directly impact the issues of social isolation, hunger, and loneliness in our communities. They do this by nourishing and enriching the lives of homebound seniors and disabled persons with the daily support they need to remain healthy and living at home. Now combined, the organization expects to keep with the growing need by increasing the number of clients served throughout the La Porte County, enhancing services including menu choices, transporting food in heated thermal cases, expanding ability to service waiver clients, and creating a stronger presence to advance fundraising and strategic partnerships. The combined organization’s central office will be in Michigan City and a second office will be maintained in the City of La Porte for volunteer meal pick up and delivery.
