World Porridge Day

Pay in your donations

We’ve teamed up with Stoats again this year for our Porridge Smiles campaign and we’re inviting everyone to make a hungry child smile with porridge! 

Why porridge?

In Malawi, Liberia and Zambia, the children receive vitamin-enriched maize porridge every school day. World Porridge Day celebrates the huge difference this daily mug of porridge makes to the lives of chronically hungry children.

Share your #PorridgeSmiles

We want to see your Porridge Smiles, especially from World Porridge Day. Share your pictures on social media using #PorridgeSmiles or email us for a chance to see your Porridge Smiles in our 2018 hall of fame.

Step 1 

Create a smiley face or character in your porridge.

Step 2 

Text ‘OATS18 £2’ to 70070 to give £2 to Mary’s Meals and provide a hungry child with meals in school for a month.


Step 3

Snap a picture of your Porridge Smile, share it on social media using #PorridgeSmiles and encourage others to do the same!
