35,826 Packed By Madonna University During The 4th Annual Franciscan Day Of Service At St. Priscilla Catholic Church

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 Friday, October 8, 2021, Cross Catholic Outreach teamed up with Madonna University during their Franciscan Day of Service at St. Priscilla Catholic Church to pack 35,826 meals for poor children and families in Guatemala AND then also donated 500 lbs of white rice, 125 lbs of pinto beans, and 25 lbs of freeze-dried vegetables to St. Christine Soup Kitchen and Detroit Rescue Mission. 

This incredible work of mercy empowers 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 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 and regulations 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, 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.
