We serve those requesting our service regardless of race, ethnicity or age.
Mobile Meals is a locally funded non-profit organization and does not seek or accept government funding. The reason for this is that federally funded programs must follow federal guidelines and Mobile Meals would be limited to serving only senior citizens, 62 years of age or older. Many of our clients are disabled or have other difficulties and are not senior citizens, yet they need our help desperately. Because of this decision, we rely heavily on your continued support.
Nearly 25% of our needs must be met by donations from the general public either in conjunction with our fundraisers or through direct contribution. Our other sources include the following:
Our largest source of funding is from our recipients who pay for their meals.
We conduct fundraisers during the year and our volunteers contribute by buying and/or selling tickets for our raffle and offering their services for our other fundraisers. For more information on fundraisers click on the Fundraiser tab.
When grants are available we apply for a share of the funds available.
We solicit funds annually when we send our annual report to volunteers, donors, local service clubs, businesses, banks and foundations. If you, or your organization, would like to hear more about Mobile Meals, our Coordinator is available to provide presentations in our local area upon request.
The cost of meals for our recipients represents about 68% of the Mobile Meals budget. Wages and payroll taxes for our Coordinator represent approximately 28% of the budget and the remaining 4% cover the cost of office supplies, insurance and related expenses.
