Mary's Meals provide daily school meals to more than two million children, in 19 countries across the globe. It costs only £19.15 to feed a child for a whole school year. Their mission is to provide a daily meal in a place of learning to attract chronically poor children into the classroom, where they receive an education that can be a ladder out of poverty.

Giving talks for churches is a huge part in raising awareness and vital funds. As volunteers were unable to do this in Covid restrictions, founder Magnus sent a video message. || Watch the short films Child 31 and Generation Hope

A prayer from The Trussell Trust: Loving God, Thank you for your love and kindness. You are a God of mercy, justice, and compassion, and yet we acknowledge that these qualities are not always reflected in our lives, in our community, and in our society. Help us to respond to suffering, poverty, and hunger in ways that usher in your kingdom: to see people as you see them, to share your loving-kindness in the darkest situations, to challenge injustices that trap people in poverty, to build a future that sets people free, so that everyone can share in the fullness of life, that Christ offers to us all. amen.
