Lenten Mission: Family Meal-Packing Event

Our Lady of Hope Parish and School are teaming up for our parish Lenten mission: packing meals for Burkina Faso. OLOH Parish will be hosting a Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Helping Hands Meal Packing event on Saturday, March 21, in coordination with CRS and Rise Against Hunger.

Our 2020 goal is to feed 100,000 people by packing at least 20,000 nutritious meal packs!

Each meal pack feeds 4-6 people and will be shipped to the vulnerable people of Burkina Faso, a poor country in West Africa where 1 out of 5 people experience food insecurity. It is projected that an estimated 2 million Burkinabae will experience food insecurity by June 2020 due to war and Islamic extremism.
