Who We Are
TLC Meals on Wheels enriches the lives of seniors and others by providing nutritious meals and services that promote dignity, well-being, and independence. We drive away hunger for the home bound of South Metro Denver.
Monday through Friday, volunteers deliver a hot lunch to neighbors in need. Our service supports those whose age or disability makes it difficult to provide their own balanced nutrition. It also helps them stay in the security and comfort of their own home. In short, we address both hunger for food and hunger for personal contact.

Discovering our History
For years, the history of our organization proclaimed that it was founded by Virginia Baker in 1965, when she was preparing lunch for her parents and their friends in her kitchen. Now 50 years beyond 1965, we had been making plans to celebrate our happy 50th anniversary milestone with several special events throughout 2015—until recently.
In doing extensive research at the Littleton Museum, Bemis Library, and other places to learn more about Virginia Baker and the earliest years of TLC Meals on Wheels, we’ve now come to believe that she didn’t implement a regular meal delivery program until sometime after 1965.
