The Rooted program (6th-8th Grade Faith Formation at St. John Neumann Church) works together each year to provide 40,000 meals to the hungry and we need your support! This coming year, we will again be partnering with Cross Catholic to follow Christ’s call to feed the hungry!
First, we would like to thank all of you who supported these efforts in the past. In March of 2019, we were able to pack over 40,000 meals, meet our goal of raising $10,000, and to even provide Cross Catholic with a bit extra to support additional meals and shipping costs (see below for pictures). Most of our fundraising and our food packing event scheduled for March 2020 had to be canceled due to the current public health concerns. Fortunately, due to the amazing support of our community, we were still able to donate $5,000 to Cross Catholic which will provide about 20,000 meals to those in need (see below for an article with more details).
This coming year, we plan to pack another 40,000 meals! The Rooted program will work together at our retreat on March 21st to pack the meals (of rice, beans, and vitamins) that will then go to hungry children and families in places of need throughout our global community. It cost only $0.25 per meal which means we need to raise $10,000. Please see below for various ways to show your support!
