Parish Families Against Hunger

PFAH (Parish Families Against Hunger)

Every day, 40,000 children die from starvation.  That is one every five seconds!  

What can we do about it? 

Please consider supporting our fundraising events throughout the year and joining us on packaging day. 


June 2, 2020 Update:  Msgr. Gousse has begun to distribute food and other items to the poorest in his communities.  This is the program funded by the Five Saints PFAH $10,000 donation in May.   We were not able to package food this year during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
