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!

Thank you for joining our first round of Meet-Ups!


Based on popular request from FED attendees, we kicked off a new series of meet-up events!

These meet-ups are an informal opportunity to relax, enjoy some local beer, and talk to others interested in eating local, supporting local food businesses and farms, and advocating for our local food systems. These events are family-friendly, with free admission, and all are welcome! Keep an eye on our event calendar for future dates and locations.

Coming soon to a spot near you!

The first two events took place in Hammond and Valparaiso in May, and we look forward to scheduling more meet-ups across the region this summer and fall. Want to plan a meet-up in your neighborhood? Let us know!
