Today is World Porridge Day, 10 October, and chef Nick Nairn will be joining charity Mary’s Meals in celebrating the real difference a simple mug of porridge can make to hungry children around the world.
Mary’s Meals serves nutritious school meals to 2,279,941 children in 20 of the world’s poorest countries. With the promise of a daily meal, this incredible charity is helping to attract hungry children into the classroom, where – instead of working or looking for food – they can gain an education that can be their ladder out of poverty.
In Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe, a steaming mug of vitamin-enriched porridge is helping thousands of little ones to learn and grow and look to a brighter future.
It costs just 8p a day to feed a child with Mary’s Meals, meaning every donation – no matter how small – will make an enormous difference.
Nick Nairn said:
“I’d love for your readers to join me in supporting Mary’s Meals to transform more young lives every day through a simple, tasty bowl of porridge.”
