Volunteer Opportunities

Experience the many rewards of volunteering!

Serving South Metro Denver

Our 500+ volunteers are the engine that keeps us driving away hunger in south metro Denver.

Why volunteer with TLC Meals on Wheels?

Whether you work in the kitchen preparing meals, deliver meals to our clients, or conduct intakes in the office, your work has an immediate impact on the communities we serve. You can choose to volunteer once a week or once a month, every day, or for a special event. Some of our volunteers are preschool aged, others are in the 90’s; some just started volunteering, others have volunteered for decades.

“It’s the hugs and the wonderful people that keep me driving. I feel so appreciated.”
