When St Mark’s Meals MK first reached our attention a couple of years ago, they’d begun distributing meal boxes across schools and community centres in Milton Keynes.
This was their response to the shocking statistic that 1 in 4 children in Milton Keynes is living in poverty and risk facing hunger regularly.
Earlier this month we were delighted to finalise our charity partners for 2022, among which St Mark’s Meals MK will be included.
At a recent virtual team get together, we were lucky enough to have one of the St Mark’s Meals MK organisers join us to deliver a talk. The team found out more about the work being carried out by the charity and explored ideas around getting involved and tackling this ongoing problem.
There’s a whole lot of work that goes on behind the scenes, but here’s a brilliant short video that explains exactly what the organisation is looking to do.
In addition, the 70+ schools and children’s centres already working with this initiative, we’re pleased to be able to offer our support in volunteering and fundraising throughout 2022 and hope that together we can keep little tummies full and happy, working towards the goal of no child in MK going to bed hungry.
