41,040 Meals Packed by Saint Leo University

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, March 5, 2022, Cross Catholic Outreach teamed up with Saint Leo University to pack 41,040 meals that will be shipped to poor children and families in dire need.

This incredible work of mercy by Saint Leo University in Saint Leo, FL, 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 poverty-stricken countries 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.
