There are many ways to support our work.

How to get involved with our charity

It costs just £15.90 to feed a child with Mary’s Meals for an entire school year – meaning even small donations can transform lives.

If you’re unable to donate at this time, there are lots of other ways to support our mission.

Together, we will reach the next hungry child waiting for Mary's Meals.

It never ceases to amaze me that people find so many ways to support Mary’s Meals.
