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.
From April 20-21, Cross Catholic Outreach teamed up with St. Thomas High School to pack 100,000 meals for poor children and families around the world.
This incredible act of mercy by St. Thomas High School 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 poverty-stricken countries such as Guatemala, Haiti and Nicaragua for just 25 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.

Our mission is to mobilize the global Catholic Church to transform the poor and their communities materially and spiritually for the glory of Jesus Christ. Your gift empowers us to serve the poorest of the poor by channeling life-changing aid through an international network of dioceses, parishes and Catholic missionaries. This cost-effective approach helps break the cycle of poverty and advance Catholic evangelization.
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.
