About the Organisation

Mary's Meals is a grassroots global movement which began in 2002. The charity sets up school feeding programmes in communities where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education. It is a simple idea that works. By providing a daily meal in a place of learning, chronically poor children are attracted into the classroom where they receive a basic education that can provide an escape route from poverty. Mary’s Meals currently provides a nutritious meal to more than 1.2 million children, across 15 countries, every school day.

There has never been a more exciting time to join Mary’s Meals – a fast-growing global movement, currently providing more than one million children in some of the world’s poorest communities with a nutritious daily meal in their place of education.
