The Shed That Fed 2 Million Children: The Mary's Meals Story
Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow (Author)
An updated edition of The Shed That Fed A Million Children first published in 2015. The original book tells the incredible story of how Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, a quiet, unassuming fish farmer from Argyll, Scotland, became the international CEO of a global school-feeding charity. At that time, Mary's Meals was feeding a million children every school day in some of the poorest countries of the world. Fast forward six years and that figure has now doubled to more than 2 million children who now receive Mary's Meals daily in their place of education. In this edition, which features an additional chapter as well as a new preface and epilogue, Magnus brings the story right up-to-date, recounting how the continued growth of the international movement has been made possible, thanks to a global legion of staff, volunteers and supporters. Their unwavering commitment, dedication and continued 'little acts of love' have created an organisation that now holds the key to eradicating child hunger altogether. This humble, heart-warming yet powerful story has never been more relevant in our society of plenty and privilege. It will open your eyes to the extraordinary impact that Mary's Meals makes in the lives of the children it serves - for them, food changes the story. Speaking Volumes Christian Book of the Year 2016. Previously published as The Shed That Fed a Million Children.
