FoodUmbrella Charity Partnership
As a social business, we work with restaurants and other types of food outlets to provide customers with an informed choice. We also support charity work that has a direct and positive impact on the food available to the most vulnerable people throughout the world.
Mary’s Meals is a charity that exists to feed and support the education of the very poorest children. Every business that joins the FoodUmbrella will be contributing directly through us, in assisting our partner Mary’s Meals in feeding and changing the lives of the poorest children.
School + Food = Hope
Mary’s Meals sets up and runs school feeding programmes in some of the world’s poorest communities, where hunger and poverty often prevent children from gaining an education.
By providing a daily nutritious meal in a place of education, Mary’s Meals attracts chronically hungry children into the classroom, where—as well as sustenance—they can receive an education that could be their first step on the journey out of poverty.
Mary’s Meals is now feeding 923,572 of the world’s poorest children every day they attend school.
Without passionate, motivated volunteers, Mary’s Meals could not function. Most of the charity’s work — including the cooking and serving of meals in schools around the world — is carried out by dedicated volunteers who believe that no child should go hungry in this world of plenty.
It costs just £12.20 for Mary’s Meals to feed a child for a whole school year and at least 93p of every £1 donated is spent directly on charitable activities. In fact, the global average cost to provide each meal is 0.06p.
