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.
Uncovering our History
Our history dates back to 1965, when Virginia Baker, a Littleton resident, prepared lunch in her kitchen for her aging mother and their friends. Or so we thought. As 2015 approached and we prepared to celebrate our 50th anniversary, we could not verify the date or the history surrounding those first delivered meals in 1965.
Combing the archives at the Littleton Museum, Bemis library and other community resources, one of our board members concluded that the program could not have started until after the death of Virginia’s mother in 1966.
