St Marks MK Donations
This project began when the St Marks MK Team heard about a local head teacher who kept a toaster under her desk. She would feed children who came in to school who hadn't eaten since their free school meal the day before. 11,000 Children in Milton Keynes are living in poverty. Many are going to bed hungry which has a knock on effect at school the next day. Children who are regularly hungry finish primary school an average of 2 years behind their peers because it's hard to sleep well at night and concentrate the next day, when you haven't had any dinner. We want to make a change and ensure that no child in Milton Keynes goes to bed hungry. St Marks Meals provide a box containing a recipe card and all the ingredients needed to make a healthy family meal. They store the boxes in schools and children's centres across Milton Keynes so that any teacher can give a dinner to any child, whenever they need it.

Any donation to St Marks Meals is appreciated, and if you're able to give a small amount monthly, it will add up to lots of dinners to vulnerable families over the year. £5 provides one meal box for a family and is designed for a family of 4. £5 per month could potentially feed 240 people!
