Annette Davis from Mary’s Meals recently gave an interesting presentation to the club about the work of this global organisation which began in 2002 by feeding 200 children in one school in Malawi. It now feeds more than 2million children every school day in 12 countries across four continents.
Mary’s Meals provides life-changing meals to some of the world’s poorest children. It is a no-frills charity with a simple idea that works: by providing one good meal a day in a place of learning, hungry children are drawn into the classroom where they can receive an education that could one day free them from poverty.
Kitchens are established in the schools and local ingredients are used to provide nourishing meals. On average, it costs just £15.90 to feed one child for a whole school year.
Using locally produced food helps to support local farmers and the meals help to support families who are struggling to feed their children.
