How you can help

You can assist our teams in the UK, Europe and North America in raising awareness and funds to support our mission to end child hunger.

Whether it's organising fundraising events and starting conversations about our work in your country or using your skills to support Mary’s Meals in a local office or remotely, there are many ways that you can help to bring hope to vulnerable children by volunteering your time.

Please note, we do not offer voluntary positions in the countries where we serve meals.

Keen to play your part?

Whether you’re happiest in a group or comfortable working alone, you can tell our story and mobilise others to get involved with our work. Volunteers take on vital activities, such as giving talks; sharing social media posts; encouraging people towards our books and films; and organising or supporting fundraising events – big or small! We'd love you to help.

Volunteering overseas

Please note, while we rely on local volunteer cooks to ensure children receive much-needed meals every school day, we cannot offer opportunities to volunteer in the countries where our meals are served.

Mary’s Meals is owned and run by local communities, and this is a very deliberate feature of our working model. Our experience is that equal, trusting partnerships between schools, communities and Mary’s Meals are essential to underpin effective school feeding operations and community commitment is key to the long-term success and sustainability of our programme.
