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.

We must continue our efforts to end senior hunger and isolation in our community
Help Us Buy Our New Home
We have committed to purchasing a building at the intersection of South Broadway & Arapahoe Road in Littleton for our new facility. We are leasing the space while we raise funds to buy the property and make necessary renovations and repairs. We expect to take occupancy of the former Las Delicias restaurant later this year.
For all of TLC Meals on Wheels’ 50 years of serving the community, we have enjoyed a subsidized facility to operate from, most recently provided by Littleton Public Schools. With the passing of the November 2018 school bond, the Ames Facility (where TLC currently operates) will be razed, rebuilt, and used again for students. TLC has until Dec. 20, 2019 to vacate Ames.
Diane McClymonds, Executive Director said this announcement is also important because a campaign to raise funds for the relocation has been proceeding quietly until now.
“I am pleased to announce publicly our ‘Moving into the Future’ campaign with a goal of $2 million. We are now close to 40% of our goal, and it’s time to get the public involved.”
“We are fortunate to have a team of architects and a kitchen designer and a group of sub-contractors who are donating their services. We are still searching for a general contractor,” McClymonds said.
We delivered 130,000 meals to over 800 individuals last year; 10% more than the year before. Our new space offers room for future growth as the community ages and need for their service increases. Having a permanent home will provide us the stability for current services as well as the opportunity for new programs.
Your investment in TLC Meals on Wheels is an investment in our community. It ensures continued availability of hot meals and a friendly face at the door for the hundreds of seniors who rely on us now and into the future.

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.”
