Families Received Meals
The food packed by volunteers in the Million Meal Event in June 2022 was distributed to the poorest families in Tijuana, the Philippines and Africa.
In Tijuana, the meals were distributed by the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady, Queen of Peace, which run Casa de los Pobres. They handed out the meal packets twice a month to the families that converged in their facility by foot and bus.
And two sisters went out several times a month to far-flung neighborhoods where families live in improvised housing, struggling to survive day to day.
The meal packets were tangible proof that individuals, families and parishes gladly put their faith in action to ease a child’s hunger and to bring them hope.
