Mobile Meals Earns 4-Star Rating!

Jul 18, 2018





(SPARTANBURG, SOUTH CAROLINA 7/18/2018)Mobile Meals of Spartanburg’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the second consecutive time that Mobile Meals has earned this top distinction.


Since 2002, using objective analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. In 2011, Charity Navigator added 17 metrics, focused on governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness, to its ratings methodology.  These Accountability & Transparency metrics, which account for 50 percent of a charity’s overall rating, reveal which charities operate in accordance with industry best practices and whether they are open with their donors and stakeholders. On June 1, 2016, we upgraded our methodology for rating each charity’s’ financial health with CN 2.1. These enhancements further substantiates the financial health of our four star charities.


“Mobile Meals exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. This adds Mobile Meals to a preeminent group of charities working to overcome our world’s most pressing challenges. Based on its 4-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support Mobile Meals of Spartanburg.”


“It’s important our donors trust that we’re using their donations wisely to accomplish feeding seniors in our area. The mission of Mobile Meals is to glorify God by delivering nutritious meals, services and fellowship to the frail and homebound of Spartanburg County,” said Jayne McQueen, President and CEO of Mobile Meals.  “Our 4-star Charity Navigator rating demonstrates to our supporters our good governance and financial accountability.” Mobile Meals rating and other information about charitable giving are available free of charge on www.charitynavigator.org.   More-detailed information about Mobile Meals rating is available to Charity Navigator site visitors who become registered users, another free service.
