Today’s topics: Mary’s Meals Feeding 900,000 Schoolchildren per Day

Summary of today’s show: From an idea over pints in a pub 20 years ago to feeding 900,000 children in school per day around the world, Mary’s Meals is a Scottish-based organization inspired by the Blessed Mother’s care for the poor. Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, a 2010 CNN Hero award winner, joins Fr. Chip Hines and Domenico Bettinelli to discuss the charity he helped found, how they started by bringing aid to war-torn Bosnia in 1992, then began feeding poor children in school who otherwise would go hungry and without schooling, and now feed 20% of primary school-age children in Malawi and kids in every hemisphere. They also discuss the documentary film “Child 31” that profiles Mary’s Meals and the children they benefit.
