Company Description

Mary’s Meals is a non-profit organization that provides one daily meal in a place of education to attract chronically hungry children into a classroom, where they receive an education that can be their way out of poverty. The organization began by feeding 200 children in Malawi and today feeds more than 2 million children daily. Mary’s Meals uses locally grown food to support the local economy and works hard to keep running costs low to ensure that at least 93% of donations go to charitable work.
