$31 feeds a hungry family for a month.


Double your impact with a gift of lifesaving food, thanks to a match by two generous donors!* Gifts of $31 turn into $62 — enough to feed two families for a month! To win the fight against malnutrition, we need your help to ship valuable, donated Vitafood to families in desperate need. These meal packets are scientifically designed to address hunger and help missions restore health to malnourished families and children.

This year, one of our donors has made a $5,000 challenge gift in hopes that fellow Catholics will join to support Healthy Meals. Thanks to their generous gift, we can double the impact of your donation!*

Join Cross Catholic Outreach in providing this lifesaving recipe to families around the world.

*Until midnight on December 31, one donor’s challenge gift will be used to double all donations up to a total of $5,000 for Healthy Meals in the Christmas Catalog.

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.


The Cross Catholic Outreach Christmas Catalog makes it fun and easy to extend the joy of Christmas to the poor. Instead of being filled with retail items, the catalog contains meaningful gifts for some of the world’s most impoverished families. Some gifts are lifesaving items such as Basic Medicines or Hygiene Products, while others are large projects such as Safe Homes or Clean Water. All gifts are sent on your behalf to grateful families in developing countries.

It’s easy to shop through the Cross Catholic Outreach Christmas Catalog. Simply browse through the categories and choose an item within your budget and close to your heart, such as Emergency Aid Blankets or Powdered Milk for Children. Select and sponsor one or more of these gifts, and you’ll make a meaningful impact on the life of a needy child or family overseas. It’s that simple!

Blessing the poor happens year-round. Some gifts in our Christmas Catalog are sourced locally, so there is no need to worry about international shipping. For items that require shipping, Cross Catholic Outreach works with partners in every country we serve to ensure Christmas Catalog gifts are delivered in a timely fashion.

Yes! Making a gift in honor of a friend or family member(s) is a fun and easy way to share Christmas joy. Once you complete the checkout process, let them know by sending a print this certificate or e-Card.

Donations from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for the Christmas Catalog 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.
