Ten Tesco vouchers can feed a child for a week
A collaboration between Tesco and the charity Mary’s Meals means that schools and clubs will now be able to spend vouchers collected from the supermarket to help feed hungry children in developing countries, as well as on their own equipment, books and resources.
“We are very grateful to Tesco for allowing Mary’s Meals to benefit from this scheme,” said Abeer Macintyre, Mary’s Meals head of Supporter Care.
“We know that the Vouchers scheme helps schools and clubs in the UK to obtain some really useful equipment, and we are not asking them to go without – but we would really appreciate it if they could think of the children we support if they have some to spare when they have finished shopping.”
Mary’s Meals supplies school meals for more than half a million children in many of the world’s poorest communities. The meal provides vital nutrition and encourages children to access education when they might otherwise miss out. It costs just ten Tesco for Schools & Clubs vouchers to feed a child for a week.
While schools registered with the scheme are encouraged to donate some of their vouchers, it is not possible for individuals to give their vouchers directly to Mary’s Meals.
