Our Story


Mary’s Meals is a global charity with a simple vision – 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.

Looking to discover more about Mary’s Meals and the work we do to feed the next child? Here, you can learn more about the history of Mary’s Meals; the 20 countries where we work spanning Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, and the Caribbean; and how our vision to provide a daily meal to desperately poor children in a place of education came to be realised.
