40,000 Meals Packed in Three Hours at Food Packing Event

On Saturday, March 14, 2020, parishioners of St. Jude the Apostle Parish in Oshkosh, WI packed 40,000 meals for hungry children and families overseas during a food packing event in partnership with Cross Catholic Outreach.

Approximately 60 volunteers participated in the three-hour-long event. Their service will allow Cross Catholic Outreach to provide its ministry partners overseas with shipments of Vitafood. These nutrient-enriched meals will feed malnourished children and families in poverty-stricken countries such as Guatemala, Haiti and Nicaragua for as little as 25 cents a meal.
