Why make a small change for Mary's Meals?

We provide children from some of the world’s poorest communities with a nutritious meal at school. This encourages them into the classroom, giving them energy to learn in school and build a ladder out of poverty.

We serve more than 2.4 million children every school day, across 17 countries. Our supporters and volunteers grow the global movement, working together to reach the next child. People from all walks of life, people of hope, people like you.

It costs £19.15 to feed a child for a whole school year, just 10p per meal. That’s small change, with a big impact.

Children living in poverty have the opportunity to learn and look towards a better future.

Help to feed the next hungry child

Mary’s Meals relies on people offering their money, goods, skills, time, or prayer to help grow the movement and reach more children many of whom are living in poverty and struggle to find enough to eat while they learn. Together we can fight child hunger.

Passionate, motivated, local volunteers help keep costs low 

Community ownership is essential to Mary’s Meals’ success and volunteers are vital to our school feeding programmes. Community volunteers cook and serve our meals, using locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. We also rely on people giving their time in many other ways to ensure our work can continue.
