It’s World Porridge Day!Submitted by Charlene Wight on Tue, 10/10/2017 - 06:40
Today, October 10th, 2017, is World Porridge Day. The Scottish village of Carrbridge – home of the annual World Porridge Making Championship – teamed up with the Scottish-based charity Mary’s Meals to establish World Porridge Day. Mary’s Meals entices children in impoverished regions to stay in school by providing them with a daily meal, mostly in the form of the local version of porridge. By staying in school, the children are able to gain a basic education that can help them escape poverty.
