Our Mission
CROS Ministries serves the hungry in Palm Beach and Martin Counties through community collaborations.

We are also providing weekend bag lunches, and dinner on Sunday evenings. Click here for details and times. If you have questions about the Caring Kitchen transition, please feel free to contact Rev. Juanita Bryant Goode, Director of Engagement, who is heading up the transition at

News About CROS

Ruth's Blog

Dear Friends,

Count your blessings, name them one by one, and it will surprise you what the Lord has done... is one of the songs that I hum to during this time of the year. It brings back memories of my mother singing to us, her children, encouraging us to be thankful at all times. I am grateful for your generosity of time, talent, and treasure which enables CROS Ministries to make a lasting impact in our community.
