Food in Bolivia

Franciscan Social Center

Donate to help transform lives


In the streets of Cochabamba, Bolivia, poor families survive by selling items on the roadside or by picking through trash to find recyclables. These needy people struggle to earn enough for their “daily bread” and often suffer from intense hunger as a result. Our Lord understood the importance of food and of breaking bread, and he miraculously fed thousands to model that compassion for those who were hungry materially and spiritually.

You’re invited to share in the fellowship of Christ’s love and compassion by joining other Catholics who are helping to feed hungry brothers and sisters in Bolivia through the Franciscan Social Center’s feeding program. By donating, you will provide the bread of Life for the indigent poor through nutritious lunches three days a week.

Our Global Work

In everything we do, we remain focused on the Lord, serving with humility, fervor and love, and advancing Catholic evangelization. We work in partnership with church-based ministries and other faith-based organizations, creating and ideal synergy for the greatest impact.

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.

Donations from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for this project incurred through June 30, 2025, 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.
