Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow is the founder and CEO of Mary’s Meals — a global hunger charity that provides a daily meal in a place of education for more than 1.6 million of the world’s poorest children per day. Host Nick Nanton and Magnus discuss his second book — "Give: Charity and the Art of Living Generously,” how any genuine act of charity will always involve a risk, and learning from the people he was trying to help. Magnus also talks about founding Scottish International Relief, empowering communities to volunteer their own time to cook and grow food, and how his original business model has been replicated across 19 countries.
