What we do
Mary’s Meals provides life-changing school meals to children living in some of the world’s poorest communities. The promise of a good meal brings hungry children into the classroom, where they can gain an education and better opportunities for the future. Our meals make it possible for hungry children to come to school and give them the energy they need to concentrate and participate in class.
We are already serving 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 provide a child with meals in a place of education for a whole school year.
