ABOUT Catholic Parish Outreach
Catholic Parish Outreach (CPO) is the largest food pantry in Wake County, NC. CPO is a program of Catholic Charities, which is a 501c3 non-profit organization. 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, not religion.
Clients are referred to CPO by human service agencies, churches, medical providers, and school counselors who see first hand those who struggle in our community. Clients can receive groceries for their family, clothing (children’s up to age 4 & maternity), and baby items, at most once every 30 days.
