01 Mar Mary’s Meals Community Ambassador
Would you like to volunteer and make a difference? If your answer is yes, then becoming a Mary’s Meals Community Ambassador is perfect for you!
Mary’s Meals is a global movement that believes every child in our world of plenty should be able to receive one daily meal in a place of education.
By setting up and running school feeding programmes in some of the world’s poorest communities, Mary’s Meals attracts chronically hungry children to the classroom, where they can gain an education that can be their route out of poverty.
It costs just £13.90 for Mary’s Meals to feed a child in school for a whole school year. The charity currently reaches 1,187,104 children with a nutritious daily meal in school, across 14 countries, and is committed to spending at least 93p in every £1 directly on charitable activities.
