Around the world, an estimated 820 million people* do not have enough to eat. This number has likely grown as the impact of COVID-19 has deprived many poor families of their livelihoods.

In times of hardship, it is often the poorest, including hungry children, who suffer most.
They pray for help — and you can answer their prayers!
Cross Catholic Outreach works with local priests, sisters and lay workers in developing countries around the world to be Christ’s hands and feet to the hungry.
We fund a variety of meals that are critical for school lunches, orphanages, nutrition centers and other services reaching thousands of vulnerable children and families who might otherwise go to bed on empty stomachs.
One way your support helps is by covering the cost to ship donated supplies of Vitafood — a nutritious, rice-based meal full of vitamins and minerals. Each package of Vitafood is enough to feed six people and is scientifically designed to meet the needs of severely malnourished children.
Provide food for hungry, malnourished children and families.
Every $1 you donate provides 6 meals to the poor!
Giving monthly is a small way to have a big impact. Your regular support empowers our ministry to respond to urgent needs and fulfill our long-term projects across the world.

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, 2021, the close of our ministry’s new 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.
