Feed the Poor

Food is one of the most basic necessities of human life, yet one in seven people are hungry. Approximately 815 million people are suffering from chronic undernourishment, and inadequate nutrition is a leading cause of death in children under five. Without enough healthy food to eat, people in developing countries cannot work, go to school, or take care of their families.

To address this global need, Cross Catholic Outreach distributes and funds thousands of meals through a network of schools, orphanages, rescue centers, community-based missions and local partners around the world. These programs ensure that the hungriest members of society receive nourishment to escape the vicious cycle of poverty.

Vitafood in Honduras


Donate to help transform lives


Many Honduran children and families struggle to get enough to eat. Cross Catholic Outreach has access to thousands of donated meals that could dramatically improve their situation, but we need your support to ship them to the people who need them most.

With your help, our in-country partner – The Pearl Association – will be sent and can distribute life-giving Vitafood to local families. These scientifically formulated meals meet the needs of the chronically malnourished and will be distributed in the name of Christ through The Pearl Association’s local network of 170 institutions. Please help us rescue children and families from hunger!

Financial Accountability

At Cross Catholic, we meticulously honor the intent of our donors. All proceeds are restricted for the specific project for which they are raised. In that rare event that more funds are received than are required for a specific project, the additional funds will be used to meet the most urgent needs.

Fundraising & Administrative Expenses 5.97%
More than 94 percent of all organizational expenses, including donated goods, went directly to programs that help the poor.
Audited Financials FY2023

Donations from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures incurred through June 30, 2024, 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.
