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.

Metrics are set by a board approved Strategic Plan and followed through the next 3-5 years.

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 42th 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.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
