Mary’s Meals is a global movement of people that believes every child in our world of plenty should be able to receive one daily meal in a place of education. The Mary’s Meals campaign began in 2002 when Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow visited Malawi during a famine and met a mother dying from AIDs. When Magnus asked her eldest son Edward what his dreams were in life, he replied simply: “I want to have enough food to eat and to go to school one day.”
By setting up and running school feeding programmes in some of the world’s poorest communities, Mary’s Meals attracts chronically hungry children to the classroom, where they can gain an education that can be their route out of poverty. It costs just £13.90 for Mary’s Meals to feed a child in school for a whole school year. The charity currently reaches 1,361,586 children with a nutritious daily meal in school, across 17 countries, and is committed to spending at least 93p in every £1 directly on charitable activities.
