Proceeds benefit Mary’s Meals, a global charity that provides meals to 1.2 million of the world’s most impoverished children at their places of education.
By doing so, they fulfill the children’s immediate need for food, while supporting their education as a pathway out of poverty. They buy food locally whenever possible, and rely upon community volunteers to prepare and serve the meals. Every $19.50 donated is able to feed a child for an entire school year.
