Marys Meals

“You pray for the hungry. Then you feed them.  That’s how prayer works.” Pope Francis

The vision: that every child receives one daily meal in their place of education

Mary’s Meals is a movement to set up school feeding projects in places where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education. The education they receive is their best hope of escaping poverty in later life.  The charity has its head office, the famous shed, at Craig Lodge.  It all grew from a simple response to the suffering of the refugees caught up in the horror of the Balkans war in 1992.  It began with a local appeal for food and blankets, that Magnus and Fergus MacFarlane-Barrow drove out to Medjugorje for the refugees that had gathered there.  However what was supposed to be a one-off aid delivery led to the establishment of a charity that hopes very soon to be providing a million children with a life-transforming meal in school.
