In 1968, our founder Virginia C. Baker recognized the need to help her struggling neighbors in Littleton, Colorado. She began preparing meals in her home kitchen and delivering them herself. Today, 55 years later, we continue to carry on Virginia's legacy. Nourish Meals on Wheels is a well-established, independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Our dedicated volunteers deliver over 500 made-from-scratch meals Monday through Friday to the western Arapahoe and southeastern Jefferson Counties, covering more than 95 square miles.
