Mary’s Meals is a charity with a simple idea that works, by providing a daily meal in a place of learning we can attract chronically poor and hungry children into the classroom, where they can access that all important education. Our work is named in honour of Mary, the mother of Jesus, who raised her own child in poverty.
Mary’s Meals began by feeding just 200 children in Malawi n 2002, but, due to the generosity of our amazing supporters in the UK, we are pleased to say we are currently feeding 2,279,941 children in 20 countries every school day.
Despite the successes we have seen, our work is far from over; 64 million children worldwide miss school because of poverty - having to beg, work or scavenge just to survive – and millions more sit in classrooms across the world, so hungry that they are unable to concentrate and learn.
We need your help to reach that next child!
Would you consider joining our mission as a Community Volunteer? This is a completely flexible volunteering role where you would be helping us raise awareness across your local community of the work of Mary's Meals as well as supporting fundraising activities.
We can also provide speakers to visit your church, school or groups to share the story of Mary's Meals and our mission.
Please do get in touch if this may be of interest!
