Mary's Meals Visitor Centre in Medjugorje

In Medjugorje, visitors and pilgrims can learn more about the problem of world hunger and the charity’s simple mission to help feed the world’s poorest children at the information centre, located near the Church of St James on the main avenue, Pope John Paul II Street.

Housed in a repurposed shipping container painted our signature blue, the information centre offers a warm and welcoming space for people to come and learn more about Mary’s Meals.

A hive of activity where there’s always something going on, it’s a great place to spend time and learn more about Mary’s Meals through presentations, short films, and a visual timeline charting the history and growth of the movement. It’s staffed by knowledgeable and helpful volunteers who are used to welcoming visitors from many different countries, making it a really inspiring spot to grab a coffee and chat to friends – or, indeed, make new friends.
