A group of Marys Meals volunteers


Give your time to change the lives of hungry children around the world.

There are many ways to volunteer with Mary's Meals

Our work is only possible because of our many dedicated volunteers across the globe – from people in the UK who raise awareness, to those in the countries we serve who rise early to cook nutritious meals for their children.

We have volunteer groups across the UK, open to all, including students and young people. 

If you would like to discuss the roles listed below in more detail, please phone 0800 698 1212 or use the contact button below.
