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.
Where there’s a need, there’s a Knight. On Saturday, July 31, 2021, Cross Catholic Outreach teamed up with the Maryland Chapters of Grand Knights to pack meals for the poor — 4,000 meals for the MD food pantry and 37,573 meals for children and families in the Diocese of Suchi, Guatemala. Making this a total of 41,573 meals thank you to our 158 volunteers!
This incredible act of mercy by Maryland Chapters of Grand Knights 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 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 CDC guidelines and local regulations with regard to hygiene, social distancing, and avoiding events while sick.

Who: Maryland Chapters of Grand Knights
When: Saturday, July 31, 2021 8:30am
