We have selected Mary's Meals as our suggested Great School Run charity cause this year.
The information on this page gives you all the information you need about this fantastic charity plus teaching resources and fundraising tips.
Mary's Meals is a global movement which sets up school feeding projects in some of the world's poorest communities, where hunger and poverty stop children from gaining an education. By providing one daily meal in a place of education, chronically hungry children are attracted to the classroom where they can gain an education that can be their ladder out of poverty.
The charity currently feeds over 600,000 children every day in 16 different countries across the world. Its vision is that every child receives a daily meal in their place of education.
The average worldwide cost of providing Mary's Meals to a child for a whole school year is just £10.70. For more information, please visit www.marysmeals.org.uk
