About Longmont Meals on Wheels



Longmont Meals on Wheels has nine dedicated staff members. You can reach them Monday-Friday, 8am - 2pm at 303-772-0540. For media and development, please contact Katie directly.

Executive Director

Karla Hale


Karla, a native of Longmont, has been executive director of Longmont Meals on Wheels since 2012 and with the organization since 2001. She has served on the board of directors for Meals on Wheels America and the Longmont Police Professional Standards Review Panel. Plus, she holds numerous certificates in management, volunteer management, nutrition services and food safety. Additionally, her parents and grandparents have all retired here, truly making her an advocate for aging in Longmont.

Kitchen Manager / Cook

Charles Mascarenas


Charles cooks and also manages all kitchen activities and volunteers. He oversees the special-diet needs of clients and holds a certificate of ServSafe Manager. He is responsible for keeping the team compliant with all Boulder County Health Department regulations on a regular basis and also regarding the pandemic. After work he's usually hanging out with his three dogs, so if you see him around town, walking them, make sure you say hi!

Program Manager

Meghan Altland


Meghan has been a Longmont Meals on Wheels staff member since 2017, but before that she was a volunteer driver for five years. She began volunteering because she missed her grandmother in Pennsylvania. She has years of management and customer service experience in the food and grocery industry. She's charmingly sarcastic and almost makes it seem like it was your idea when she calls to see if you can volunteer tomorrow. But don't worry, she completely understands if you can't. She's been there! 

Client Services Coordinator

Annie Christoffersen


Annie coordinates all needs for current and new clients. She's the energizer bunny and works to make sure that the community knows about Longmont Meals on Wheels services. She manages parties for community lunches and group service projects. She was also a volunteer before she joined the staff, and her mother, who is in her 80s, continues to be a regular volunteer driver.

Development & Communications Director

Katie Wiser



720-470-9395 (cell phone for urgent media needs)

Katie writes grants and manages major events and communications. If you are a business and want a sponsorship, a media representative and want to do a story or just have a cool photo of Longmont Meals on Wheels, please contact her. If you want to make her laugh for days, tell her a grammar joke.

Program Assistant

Andrea Ralston


Andrea was a client advocate before she even joined the staff - her mother-in-law was a client until her passing. Andrea helps run the program, but you'll definitely see her at the lunch break window when you join us for lunch at the senior center.

Kitchen Assistant

Executive Assistant

Office Assistant

Christian Stewart

Christian is the newest member of the team. He has worked in a restaurant since he was 16, but this is his first full-time job, as he graduated from high school recently! He isn't on social media, so you'll have to say hi in person. 

Carly Hale


Carly grew up with Longmont Meals on Wheels from when she was in elementary school and began her own project, "Carly's Cards," where she sent cards to all of our clients on their birthdays to now, helping our executive director. 

Jyl Phillips


Like Annie and Meghan, Jyl was a volunteer driver for years before she joined the staff. Now she helps in the office and is usually the fastest to answer the phone, but don't worry - you'll still see her taking meals to clients too.
