What we do
Mary’s Meals serves nutritious school meals to children living in some of the world’s poorest communities. The promise of a good meal attracts these hungry children into the classroom, giving them the energy to learn and hope for a better future.
We are already feeding 2,429,182 children every school day – and, together, we can reach the next hungry child waiting for Mary’s Meals. It costs just £19.15 to feed a child in a place of education for a whole school year.
