Mary's Meals

The Daily Telegraph has a piece on the Scottish charity, Mary's Meals, which provides 350,000 school meals for children every day. The cost per child seems to be as little as £8.50 per year- for UK parents, that's less than a week's worth of school dinners.
Headed by Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, father of six, Mary's Meals does not conform to any known business model, (how refreshing-a charity that is a charity, not a business), and...wait for it...doesn't do targets!
Definitely sounds like my kind of charity.


  1. Now that is Charity!We could do with so much more of it!

  2. Too Right, Annie, I'm hoping my Parish youth group will take it on, as a Lenten charity.
