Now feeding over 1,500 children every school day with Mary's Meals

Charity Partner
Mary's Meals aims to feed every hungry child in the world's poorest communities, enabling them to stay healthy. And because the meal is only provided at their place of education, it's an incredible incentive for the kids to stay in school. Just flicking through their website, I feel a bit overwhelmed by the sheer size of their mission. But as they say, with everyone chipping in and working together, it's achievable.

"Mary's Meals is a series of lots of little acts of love. If you put all those acts of sacrifice together, it creates a beautiful thing."

Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, Mary's Meals Founder and CEO

Last year, Co-Founder Steve Pilgrim had a dream to feed 1,500 children in Malawi through Be One Percent and it's partnership with Mary's Meals. And thanks to you, we now feed 1,566 every school day. What an incredible achievement! I thought you might like to see the team's visit to Mary's Meals projects last year

So what's next for Mary's Meals? They won't rest until every child is fed and there is long-term sustainable transformation of hundreds of thousands of lives of impoverished children around the world. I don't know about you, but I feel really humbled and grateful that my little bit of giving is doing an incredible work. Thank you for Being One Percent.

Mary’s Meals is an international movement that sets up school feeding projects in communities where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education. The charity now feeds over 2.4 million children every school day and it costs just £19.15 to feed a child for a school year. We sponsored our first school with Mary’s Meals in 2011 and have been working with them ever since
