Erika B. has a developmental disability and is one of our younger program recipients. She absolutely loves Meals on Wheels. Erika constantly calls her mom, Loretta, to tell her what she's having for dinner. She knows what time the delivery arrives and always looks forward to seeing the drivers. Since she started our program in October 2015, she has lost a significant amount of weight. Her mom feels this is due to the balanced nutrition she receives in our meals. The joy and nutrition our program has provided for her have clearly had a positive impact on Erika.

"I'm almost 90 years old and I've lived a rich, full life. I'm cooped up at home now due to an illness and, since I can't get out much, I look forward to those who can come to me. I'm especially grateful for the wonderful volunteers from Meals on Wheels. All of the drivers are exceptionally nice people. I just can't say enough good things about them. They always have a smile on their faces and show concern for my welfare. I am so thankful for the kindness and courtesy they show me every day."

"I attribute my recovery and good health to the balanced and nutritious meals I received from Meals on Wheels. I know I would not have felt up to making good meals for myself. The changes were gradual, but definitely there."

- Norm 

Giving Activity


Meals on Wheels of Loveland and Berthoud seeks to nourish and enrich the lives of homebound individuals by providing nutritious meals and daily contact by a caring volunteer.

Background Statement

Meals on Wheels of Loveland and Berthoud, Inc. (MOW-LB) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit human service agency providing nutritious meals delivered by volunteers to homebound seniors and people with disabilities living in Loveland, Berthoud and surrounding communities.

The Meals on Wheels model was established in England after WWII, and by 1957 it had spread to the U.S. In 1968, MOWLB became the first home delivery meal service program west of the Mississippi River. Our organization's launch was a collaborative, community effort led by local Red Cross volunteer, Dorothy Morin, and philanthropist Helen Erion. MOW-LB's first day of operation resulted in 12 meals prepared and delivered out of the local Elks Club kitchen.

In 2023, we'll prepare and deliver nearly 84,000 meals out of our own commercial kitchen in downtown Loveland.
