Volunteer and help us feed more hungry children

Donating your time can help us make a difference

Published on

By becoming a Mary’s Meals volunteer, you can help us reach more hungry children living in some of the world’s poorest countries with the promise of a daily meal. 

There are many ways you can get involved in helping us such as giving talks in schools and churches; holding screening events for Mary’s Meals’ inspiring films, or helping to organise fundraising events.  

Emma Hutton, head of grassroots engagement at Mary’s Meals, said: “We simply couldn’t feed two million children every school day without our wonderful volunteers. They are at the very heart of our work.  

“We would love to welcome more volunteers into our Mary’s Meals family, so that we can keep reaching the little ones who rely on our life-changing meals. We have lots of exciting opportunities and provide training and support throughout.” 

We serve a daily meal to children every school day in 20 of the world’s poorest countries, including Ethiopia, Haiti, Malawi, Liberia, South Sudan, Zambia and Yemen. The promise of a nutritious meal attracts hungry children into the classroom, where they can gain an education and hope for a brighter future.   

Bertha from Zambia

Bertha, 11, loves learning. The nutritious mug of porridge she receives at her school in Zambia allows her to concentrate in class and work towards her dream of becoming a teacher.   

She says: “I get to school at 9am and wait for the porridge. I admire my teachers so when I grow up and finish school, I would like to become a teacher.”

It costs just £15.90 to feed a child for a whole school year.
