40,000 Meals To be Packed By Barry University
To Kick Off Founder's Week

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 Monday, November 8, 2021, Cross Catholic Outreach will team up with Barry University to pack 40,000 meals. 36,000 meals are being packed and will be shipped to poor children and families in Guatemala and 4,000 meals will be provided to local food pantries in the Miami area.

This inspiring work of mercy will empower faithful Catholics to bring Matthew 25:35 to life. “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”

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 33 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.

Cross Catholic Outreach

Our mission is to mobilize the global Catholic Church to transform the poor and their communities materially and spiritually for the glory of Jesus Christ. Your gift empowers us to serve the poorest of the poor by channeling life-changing aid through an international network of dioceses, parishes and Catholic missionaries. This cost-effective approach helps break the cycle of poverty and advance Catholic evangelization.

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.
