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.
Where there’s a need, there’s a Knight. On Saturday, October 16, 2021, Cross Catholic Outreach teamed up with WV Councils of Knights of Columbus to pack 100,490 meals for poor children and families around the world.
This incredible act of mercy by WV Councils of Knights empowers 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 30 cents a meal.

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.
