Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Mobile Meals' goal is to provide services to those who are frail and homebound within Spartanburg County, using volunteers to deliver the meals, without having a waiting list for our services. We serve nearly 1200 recipients each weekday.

To serve the homebound in need of a meal who cannot prepare a meal for themselves.
To raise the funds necessary to provide meals at no cost to the recipient and without using government funds.

The board, volunteers, donors and staff of Mobile Meals are committed to securing the financial support and organizational planning to meet our goals and to serve those in need of home delivered meals.

Mobile Meals has been delivering meals to the homebound of Spartanburg County since 1977, beginning with 25 recipients to nearly 1200 daily recipients currently. Our volunteers take meals to their neighbors 5 days a week. This has been accomplished through the generosity of individuals, businesses, churches, civic groups, and foundations, with no local, state or federal government support. As Mobile Meals celebrates its 44th anniversary and looks forward to serving the homebound through the next decade, we will continue provide nutrition and support for those who are frail, hungry and alone.
