Regional Coordinator

Part Time - Remote 

Dallas/ Ft. Worth area 

Our vision 

That every child receives one daily meal in their place of education and that all those who have more than they need, share with those who lack even the most basic things. 

Our mission 

To enable people to offer their money, goods, skills, time, or prayer, and through this involvement, provide the most effective help to those suffering the effects of extreme poverty in the world’s poorest communities. 

Our values 

Confidence in the innate goodness of people – respect for the dignity of every human being and family life – good stewardship of resources entrusted to us.  

Hunger kills millions of children each year. It also stunts their growth – and their dreams.  Hungry children think about survival, not about going to school – around 57 million of the world’s hungriest children do not attend school.                           

These life-changing meals attract hungry children into the classroom. Food fills their empty bellies, so they have the energy and opportunity to learn, giving them the chance of a brighter future. The meals also support families struggling to feed their children while boosting the country’s wider economy.

Mary's Meals is now feeding over 2.4 million of the world’s poorest children every day they attend school. It costs just $25.20 to feed a child for a whole year.
