    Story

    TLC Dinner Choices started trading approximately 5 years old. Our objective was to supply homecooked nutritous meals. Our kitchen was based in a community hub that supports people with learning difficulties. We then expanded to another hub providing nourishing hot meals to the elderly and those with other disabilities as well as supplying a dementia unit based in another part of Norwich. Meals are especially important to the elderly. Many of these people attend the community hubs for support and so they are not socially isolated. TLC's name stands for Tender Loving Care and we provide meals with those words in mind.

    When the Hubs closed many of the customers were in tears and worried about their future. We initially solved this problem by offering our hot and chilled meal service being delivered to their homes. Word started to spread and we have identified there are a lot more people in the community who need our service but are on low incomes. Whilst the cost of a dinner and dessert including delivery is set at a reasonable cost of £6.50 many cannot do not have the money to pay.

    This is where we are reaching out to you, the community, to help TLC Dinner Choices to help those less fortunate than others. There is nothing more soul destroying than taking a call from an elderly person who is scared they cannot obtain food from their luncheon clubs, day centres even the shops but cannot use our service as their income is low.

      I would like to thank everyone who has made a donation so far. The money has helped immensely to provide hot nourishing meals to many people who are suffering with disabilities and were struggling to prepare a meal never mind get the ingredients, families who were still waiting for the benefits to be processed even those with dementia. It has shown there is STILL a great need in the Norwich area for your help. Please help to keep the provision of these meals going by giving whatever you can. Thank you so much - Elaine
