Organisation aims and objectives

Mary’s Meals is an international charity that provides a daily nutritious meal in school to more than 1.2million hungry and impoverished children in 14 countries. Our vision is 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. Working together with those who share our vision, we believe there is no good reason why this cannot be realised.
