In developing countries, mothers are turning to extreme measures due to the global hunger crisis. Some boil pots of rocks and water so their children can fall asleep imagining they’ll have food in the morning. The sad reality of the COVID-19 pandemic is many people around the world are falling into food insecurity. More than ever, impoverished children and families need nutritious food.
On Saturday, January 8, 2022, Cross Catholic Outreach teamed up with American Martyrs Catholic Church and over 700 volunteers showed up to pack 150,150 meals that will be shipped to poor children and families in Santa Rosa, Guatemala.
Together we can provide our ministry partners in developing countries with shipments of Vitafood. These nutrient-rich meals will feed children and families in the poverty-stricken country of Guatemala for just 30 cents a meal.
For the safety of all participants during the COVID-19 pandemic, our meal-packaging activities follow diocesan and parish guidelines with regard to hygiene, social distancing, and avoiding events while sick.

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures incurred through June 30, 2022, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
