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 Saturday, November 20, 2021, Cross Catholic Outreach teamed up with St. Peter Catholic Church for the 3rd food packing event in the last 5 years and about 150 volunteers showed to pack 40,176 meals that will be shipped to poor children and families in Guatemala.
This incredible work of mercy by St. Peter Catholic Church in Jupiter, FL 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 25 cents a meal.

Who: St. Peter Catholic Church

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures incurred through June 30, 2022, 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.
