My friend M and I recently attended a Mary's Meals Double The Love afternoon cream tea.
The charity provides meals to some of the world’s poorest children every day they attend school. The meals attract hungry children into the classroom. The food fills their empty tummies so they have the energy and opportunity to learn, giving them the chance of a brighter future. The meals also support families struggling to feed their children.
The school feeding programmes are owned and run by community volunteers in the countries where they provide food. And the committees are made up of parents, teachers and volunteers. They also have a long history of providing emergency relief to vulnerable regions around the world. Long term their work encourages community support for education, provides support for smallholder farmers and increases government recognition of school feeding.
It was a lovely afternoon, and good to be helping a very worthwhile charity.
