Mary’s Meals is delighted to announce a new partnership with the One Foundation which will help transform the lives of tens of thousands of children in Africa.
The charity, which feeds the world’s poorest children in a place of education, will receive a donation from each packet of One Oaty Goodness Porridge sold in UK supermarkets.
It costs Mary’s Meals a global average of 4p to give a child a life sustaining meal. Each penny generated by sales of this new product will have a significant impact.
One Oaty Goodness will work towards combating hunger and malnutrition throughout Africa.
The money raised by this partnership will initially feed children in Malawi and Liberia, Mary’s Meals’ two biggest projects in two of the world’s most deprived countries.
Malawi is where the Mary’s Meals campaign started in 2002. The charity is now feeding over 470,000 Malawian children each school day, which is more than 17% of the primary school population. They are fed Likuni Phala, a locally sourced, maize based, porridge type mix.
In Liberia which has suffered many years of civil war, Mary’s Meals helps former child soldiers and girls. The daily meal here is rice, fish and beans.
One Oaty Goodness is available in Tesco’s, Sainsbury’s and Ocado – other retailers are expected to join soon. You can view the video below of a recent trip to Malawi to visit school feeding programmes that will be funded by the sale of One Porridge.
