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.
Saturday, June 12, 2021, Cross Catholic Outreach teamed up with Sts. Simon & Jude and over 400 volunteers to pack 60,042 meals for poor children and families around the world.
This incredible act of mercy by Sts. Simon & Jude 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.
