FIRST Minister Nicola Sturgeon is joining other leaders in the Scottish Parliament to tuck into a mug of porridge for charity.

Celebrating World Porridge Day today, Sturgeon was served her breakfast by Mary’s Meals, a charity which feeds more than

1.5 million hungry children across the world.

The First Minister, along with fellow Scottish leaders Richard Leonard, Willie Rennie and Jackson Carlaw, were raising awareness of the charity’s work providing a meal to children from 18 countries each day at school.

Sturgeon said: “Mary’s Meals is a charity, founded here in Scotland and supported by the Scottish Government since its very beginnings, which does fantastic work in helping to feed children all around the world.”

The charity can feed a school child for a whole year for £13.90, on average, with 1,504,471 kids fed each weekday in many countries.
