Mary’s Meals provides a daily meal at school for children in some of the world’s poorest communities. The meal allows the hungry child to have something nutritious to eat, while enabling children to gain an education, which can be their ladder out of poverty. Our global average cost to feed a child for one year is just $22. At least 93% of donations go towards our charitable activities.
