Catholic Parish Outreach is the largest food pantry in Wake County, NC. We serve any resident of Wake, Johnston, or Franklin County who is referred to us in writing by an agency (such as the Department of Social Services), church (any denomination), community, or public service organization, based on need. Services are provided to those of all faiths, or no faith tradition.

For more information about the Catholic Parish Outreach Food Pantry, please visit the program website or download the CPO Brochure.

Volunteers play a very important role in the services that Catholic Charities provide. Volunteers work with poor and vulnerable families of all faith traditions, and quite a few only Speak Spanish.
