Indiana Dunes Tourism grant awarded to Council

This February, the NWI Food Council became a proud recipient of the Indiana Dunes Tourism grant. Indiana Dunes Tourism contributes over $34,000 in grants each year to local organizations in an effort to bring more visitors into Porter County.

We feel honored and grateful to receive this support, and we look forward to putting it toward bettering the NWI community!
