President's Charity 2020
My charity is Mary's Meals whose vision 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.
These 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 school feeding programmes are owned and run by community volunteers in the countries where we provide food. For example, there are over 80,000 volunteers in Malawi who take turns to prepare, cook and serve the daily meal in each school.
School feeding committees – made up of parents, teachers and volunteers – are crucial to and one of the first things to be established in any new area receiving Mary’s Meals.
