Meal Delivery Program

We deliver hot, fresh, nutritious meals every weekday directly to your home in the communities of Lafayette, Louisville, Superior, and Erie. Our delicious meals are made from scratch daily by our talented culinary staff and can be customized to meet your special dietary needs. We serve anyone in need of a hot meal and daily well-check regardless of age or income. 

 

Who is eligible? 

CCMOW serves anyone in need of a hot meal and daily well-check regardless of age or income, or documentation status.  We serve older adults, people living with disabilities or chronic physical and cognitive illnesses, low-income families, and anyone else in need. 

Meal Delivery Schedule

Meals are delivered Monday through Friday between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. by an amazing screened, trained, and trusted CCMOW volunteer.

 

Each meal includes an entrée, vegetable, carbohydrate, salad and fruit or dessert. We are equipped to meet your specialized dietary or medical restrictions, too. Frozen and fresh items are delivered on Fridays for the weekend upon request. Caring delivery volunteers provide clients with social interaction to combat isolation.

 

Now Offering Salads!

CCMOW is now offering a choice between the scheduled hot meal and a chef's salad! If interested, clients must contact the office and let them know what day(s) they would like their meal replaced with a salad no later than Friday for the following week. Salads will still include accommodations for dietary restrictions.

 

Cost

Sliding scale based on self-reported monthly income and household size.

Coal Creek Cafe, our onsite Congregate Meal Program, is sponsored in part by the City of Lafayette as its Senior Nutrition Program.

This program provides high-quality, nutrient-dense meals for diners as well as essential daily social interaction between Josephine Commons residents, members from the community, and the CCMOW kitchen staff and volunteers.

Plates for Pets 

Plates for Pets is CCMOW’s pet food delivery program made possible through a partnership with Colorado Pet Pantry. Through this program, CCMOW provides food to clients’ pets (dogs, cats, fish, and rodents) along with their own delivered meal. It has been demonstrated that pets reduce stress, lower blood pressure, increase social interaction, promote physical activity, and can reduce feelings of depression and loneliness. The program helps ensure that our homebound clients are not forced to give up their pets because of an inability to feed them.

Who is eligible? 

Pet food delivery is available to CCMOW meal delivery clients. If you are already receiving meals from us and would like to start receiving pet food deliveries, call and let us know. If you're not currently a client and would like to receive food for yourself and a pet, follow the link below to fill out our meal delivery application. 

 

Delivery Schedule

On the last Monday of each month and throughout that week, clients who have signed up for the service receive a one month supply of food for their animal(s) (cats, dogs, fish, birds and rodents) along with their own delivered meal.​​

Cost

A $5 monthly donation per pet is requested, but not required. 

How to Donate Pet Food

Visit the Colorado Pet Pantry website to learn more about donating pet food. 

Buddy Program

Beyond food insecurity, social isolation and loneliness are two critical health concerns that already threaten homebound members of our community. A daily visit from a caring volunteer delivering a meal makes many of our clients feel less lonely, and we realized that we could offer more support to our clients by creating an opportunity for extended visits with volunteers.

In January 2024, we launched the Buddy Program which pairs volunteers with clients to provide additional social interaction to combat social isolation and loneliness. "Buddies" are required to meet at least two hours per month and typically spend time chatting, playing games, reading, or engaging in other activities of interest for both the volunteer and the client.

If you are interested in volunteering for the Buddy Program, contact Luna Collins, Volunteer Coordinator. If you are interested in being matched with a volunteer buddy, call our office at 303-665-0566 or contact Emma Gaulin, Client Services Manager.
