Meals are delivered Monday - Friday between 11am and 12:45 pm. If you will not be home, let us know. We can leave you meal for you. We prefer to use coolers when recipients are not home, so please let us know if you need one.

The meals are delivered by volunteers who are the heart and soul of the program. Their warm, human touch means so much to our clients. Without their selfless dedication, we could not serve the meals we provide each weekday in Vigo County. We are constantly looking for additional volunteers to deliver meals. If you think you’d like to volunteer, even for just one day per month, please call (812) 232-3878

We prepare our meal daily, in a commercial kitchen. Our Kitchen Manager / Chef & Assistant Chef plans & prepares meals with assistance from volunteers. Drivers pick up the packaged meals and deliver them to clients’ homes. Note: Each day’s meal are prepared, packaged, and delivered under strict food safety guidelines to minimize the risk of contamination. The meals are cooked fresh daily then delivered to our recipients.
