Cake Stuff Supports Mary’s Meals Double The Love Campaign

Donations made to Mary’s Meals this winter will be matched, up to £1.6 million

We’re excited to announce that Cake Stuff is supporting Double The Love, a campaign which will help Mary’s Meals feed even more hungry children living in some of the world’s poorest countries.  Donations made to the charity before 31 January 2022 will be doubled by a group of generous supporters up to £1.6 million – helping to provide nutritious meals at school, attracting children into the classroom and giving them the energy to learn. 

Daniel Adams, executive director of Mary’s Meals, says: “I hope people will donate to Mary’s Meals this winter so that we can access all of the £1.6 million of match funding that is available to us. These funds really will change the lives of children facing the most difficult circumstances, including natural disasters, conflict, and the ongoing Covid pandemic.”

Sibongile, 13, and Sarah, 10, live with their mother and siblings in a farming village in Zambia. The girls face many struggles – such as the two-hour walk to school. Sibongile only has black pumps that are too big for her and Sarah wears rubber sandals.

But both make the journey knowing that they can soon fill their stomachs with a nutritious meal which will help them to concentrate on their lessons.

Sibongile says: “I eat my porridge at 11am. If there’s no leftover food from the night before that will be the first time I eat.”

She dreams of being a nurse so she can help people.

With the charity’s low-cost approach, a donation of just £15.90 will feed a child with Mary’s Meals for a whole school year. And until 31 January 2022, that same donation, when matched will feed two hungry children for an entire school year.
