The vision behind Mary’s Meals is that every child receives one daily meal in their place of education and that all those who have more than they need, share with those who lack even the most basic things.
Mary’s Meals provides life-changing meals to some of the world’s poorest children. The life-changing meals attract hungry children into the classroom. The food fills their empty bellies so they have the energy and opportunity to learn, giving them the chance of a brighter future. The meals also support families struggling to feed their children while boosting the country’s wider economy.
The charity also provides emergency relief. Mary’s Meals grew out of a response to the Bosnian conflict in the early 1990s. Since then they have been involved in emergency relief work in countries including Burma, Haiti, India, Kenya and Thailand.
