Mobile Meals of the Grand Strand (MMGS) is
a partner with United Way and is the umbrella
corporation which composes Mobile Meals of
the North Strand, Mobile Meals of Myrtle
Beach, and Mobile Meals of the South Strand. All persons working for Mobile Meals of the Grand Strand and the three groups composing it are volunteers. This includes all administrative personnel, client interviewers, drivers, packers and runners who take the meals into the clients home.
The purpose of Mobile Meals is to provide meal service to the ill, elderly, disabled, shut-in, and other persons in the Grand Strand area east of the Intracoastal Waterway in Horry County who are handicapped in their ability to obtain adequate nutrition for themselves. These nutritious home-delivered meals are packaged in insulated containers to keep them warm until delivered between 10:00 am and around noon time Monday through Friday, including holidays with the exception of Thanksgiving and Christmas for the South Strand when an extra meal will be provided the day before.
While financial status is not a factor in determining eligibility for the meal, it does determine how much an applicant would pay for the meal. Funding for this ministry is provided by the churches and meal payments from clients who have the ability to pay as well as funds from civic groups, Chapin Foundation, Ocean View Memorial Foundation, United Way and FEMA. Mobile Meals of the Grand Stand is a United Way partner.
