40,384 meals packed by Pittsburgh Chapter of Grand Knights

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, June 11, 2022, the Pittsburgh Chapter of Grand Knights teamed up with Cross Catholic Outreach to pack 36,288 meals to be shipped to families in dire need in a developing country. Additionally, 4,096 mac and cheese meals were packed and donated to a local food pantry.

This incredible work of mercy by Pittsburgh Chapter of Grand Knights in Pittsburgh, PA, will empower Cross Catholic Outreach to provide its ministry partners in developing countries with shipments of Vitafood. These nutrient-rich meals will feed children and families in dire need for just 33 cents a meal.

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures incurred through June 30, 2023, 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.
