The team at Indesign, LLC has a long history of community involvement and is proud to continue serving our community. Meals on Wheels is a wonderful organization that we are privileged to work with. Through Meals on Wheels, the Indesign team volunteers to deliver meals to home bound citizens and seniors in our local community. Meals on Wheels is the only provider of medically-tailored meals to Central Indiana’s home bound citizens.
The Indesign team has been delivering meals since 2007. We do this during lunchtime several days a month. Our delivery route typically takes us to 10-15 residences, and it includes two medically-tailored meals each weekday on a short or long-term basis. It is estimated we have delivered over 8,400 meals.
As a volunteer delivery person, I can appreciate the importance and value of this service. It can be extremely gratifying to see the look on their faces when we arrive. We may be the only human contact they have that day, and we have made it a little brighter.

The concept of Meals on Wheels originated in Great Britain following the Blitz in 1939 when the Women’s Volunteer Service for Civil Defense began serving food to the ill and elderly who were unable to care for themselves. An early form of Meals on Wheels originated in Indianapolis in the 1960s as a Little Red Door Cancer Agency program, serving meals by truck— only to cancer patients. This project had to be discontinued due to a lack of clients and the expenses involved in the delivery.
On March 4, 1971, Meals on Wheels starts with six clients and ten volunteers and worked out of University Heights Hospital. With the success, experience, and leadership of the National Council of Jewish Women, Technical and Managerial Services (TAMS) assisted in co-sponsoring a new city-wide program, now known as Meals on Wheels, Inc. A number of members of the TAMS Board of Directors became actively involved on the board of Meals on Wheels and made important contributions to the early growth of the program.
