9780007578313: The Shed That Fed a Million Children

Mary’s Meals is born from acts of love. If you put all those many acts of sacrifice together it creates a beautiful thing.

Mary’s Meals tells the inspirational and compelling story of how a cripplingly shy fish farmer from Argyll, Scotland, became the international CEO of a global charity that now feeds over 800,000 children a day.

In 1992, Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow was enjoying a pint with his brother when he got an idea that would change his life – and radically change the lives of others. After watching a news bulletin about war-torn Bosnia, the two brothers agreed to take a week’s hiatus from work to help.

What neither of them expected is that what began as a one-time road trip in a beaten-up Landrover rapidly grew to become Magnus’s life’s work – leading him to leave his job, sell his house and direct all his efforts to feeding thousands of the world’s poorest children.

Magnus retells how a series of miraculous circumstances and an overwhelming display of love from those around him led to the creation of Mary’s Meals; 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 one person can make.

About the Author:

Magnus lives in Scotland and is the founder and CEO of Mary’s Meals, a charity which, every school day, feeds nearly 1 million chronically hungry children in some of the world’s poorest countries. Magnus was named one of 2010’s Top Ten Heroes by CNN and he received an OBE in the 2011 New Years Honours list.

Review:

“One simple decision, and thousands of starving children have been fed. That’s what Magnus did.”– Gerard Butler

“Through the grace and love provided by Mary’s Meals, there is hope, there is a future, there is life.” – Celine Dion
