TLC Meals on Wheels delivers meals, love
Sponsor a day during our 12 Days of Giving Program
From December 7th through 24th
Every day 500 gifts are delivered with our client’s meals. This has become a very special program for our organization as many of our clients do not have friends or family close and may be home bound. We had a client last year who saved all of his gifts and placed them under his Christmas tree to open on Christmas morning – he cherished every gift as these were all he received.
Sponsor a day for $500. You can purchase, collect through donations, or we can purchase (with your donation) the items chosen for your day. Call Korri for more information 303-798-7642.

We deliver 320 frozen meals every Friday for clients to eat during the weekend. We deliver 220 bags of non-perishable food items the second Saturday of every month for those in need. Thank you to our kitchen staff and volunteers for preparing and delivering meals, groceries, and pet food to seniors and homebound adults in our community!

Let’s Do Lunch!
1 in 6 seniors faces the threat of hunger and many more live in isolation. With the senior population expected to double by 2050, MoW America launched Let’s do Lunch, a national campaign to raise awareness and engage more volunteers.

Learn about the many benefits of TLC Meals on Wheels
2018 Virginia Baker Volunteer of the Year Award recipient is Andrea Stevens
(From left to right: Executive Director Diane McClymonds, Andrea Stevens, and Director of Operations Dana Gaston.)
Most people volunteer once a week. Andrea is scheduled to work on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the kitchen. She is often at TLC Meals on Wheels much more than that. Many weeks she’s in the kitchen almost every day. Andrea routinely comes in early, stays late AND has solid cooking skills. She has even cleaned the ovens ; not our expectation for volunteers! Recently she spent the day doing the dishes. She uses her vehicle for food runs to Restaurant Depot. She’s willing to do whatever is needed.
Andrea is hard worker, always pleasant, reliable and fun to work with. We are pleased to award her the 2018 Virginia Baker Volunteer of the Year Award.

Drive Away Hunger!
“It is not an exaggeration to say that TLC helped save my life. Cooking healthful meals when I am unable to do so adequately or safely. Also, knowing MOW is coming is a daily reason to get dressed, look presentable and thank the extraordinarily kind people that contribute their time and energy to bring “home cooked” food to me. It makes me feel human, dignified and thankful. I thank you more than words can say.”Katie
