Current opportunity

We are looking for people who are passionate about ending child hunger and ensuring that every child receives a daily meal in a place of education. We have a range of activities that can be done from the comfort of your home, while Covid-19 restrictions are in place. They include: hosting virtual talks, spreading the word about our work on social media or holding screenings of our inspiring videos with family and friends. If you don’t mind public speaking, we can also train you to visit schools, Rotary Clubs and other local organisations to give talks virtually and generate support for our cause. As restrictions change across the UK, other key activities may include: • Sharing our story (in person) with local community organisations, schools, churches, and faith groups. • Organising fundraising events in your local area – such as coffee mornings, quizzes, and bucket collections. • Promoting Mary’s Meals’ fundraising campaigns in your community. • Distributing and displaying promotional materials and placing collection tins. • Helping to generate support from businesses in your local area. Our flexible volunteer roles allow you to raise awareness in your own community in whatever way you feel comfortable. All of our volunteer activities are tailored to suit your different skills and time constraints.
