CELTIC FC FOUNDATION DONATES £100K TO MARY'S MEALS TO SUPPORT 67 KITCHENS PROJECT
AS part of the 2017 Lions’ Legacy fundraising campaign, Celtic FC Foundation undertook a joint venture with Mary’s Meals to build 67 Kitchens in Africa; 47 in Malawi and 20 in Zambia.

The 67 Kitchens are now fully operational, with the number of children enrolled at those schools totalling 44,459.

In keeping with Mary’s Meals’ successful model, the Kitchens are located in school grounds, to encourage learning and increase opportunities. The aim is that every child is provided with one daily meal at school where they receive an education that can, in the future, be their ladder out of poverty.

Following our previous investment of £356.5K, we are now delighted to announce that a balance of £100K has been donated to Mary’s Meals, to help contribute towards the feeding and maintenance costs of these kitchens.

This has been raised largely by CSCs and individual supporters through sponsorship of the 67 Kitchens and we are so grateful for this magnificent contribution.

This phenomenal effort will ensure that each of these Kitchens continues to provide much-needed meals to hungry children across Malawi and Zambia, every school day.
