Don Quijote To Raise Money for Meals On Wheels

Don Quijote Restaurante presents their Annual “Benefit Dinner” Curbside to raise $20,000 for the VNA Porter County Meals on Wheels program.

Since mid-March, Meals on Wheels has seen a 57% increase in need and anticipates it will only continue to rise. In an effort to meet the need a new walk-in refrigerator is necessary to help maintain proper food prep standards for client meals.

“This is just one of the many critical needs in our community,” said Kim Olesker, president & CEO of United Way of Porter County. “We can’t thank Carlos from Don Quijote and his team enough for helping us to raise support for homebound seniors.”

The program currently serves 300 seniors daily help maintain their nutritional well-being and is a partnership between VNA of Northwest Indiana, Pines Village Retirement Communities and United Way of Porter County.

Don Quijote’s Benefit Dinner menu will feature Chef Carlos Rivero’s signature paella with appetizer, salad, dessert and bottle of red, white or rosé wine. Traditional and vegetarian paella available.

Single and dinner for two packages available. Single dinners are $65 and dinner for two are $125. Bottle of wine option only included in dinner for two package. Dinner will be curbside pickup only on Sunday, August 16, 2020 from 1 to 5 p.m. To purchase a dinner package, visit
