CPO Food Drive List

Feed-a-Family Food Drive 2021

Please bring your contributions to the CPO truck in the St. Mary parking lot on Saturday and Sunday, July 17 and 18.     

We thank you for your help! Any contribution you can make to the Feed-A-Family Food Drive is deeply appreciated. Below are 2 ways to contribute:

  • Purchase groceries. Use the shopping list below as a guide or buy multiples (for example, a case) of a couple items. 
  • No time to shop? Thanks to food donations and CPO’s volume buying power,a donation of $40 feeds a family for one week.  Monetary donations are tax deductible. Make your check payable to Catholic Parish Outreach, and give it to a volunteer at the CPO truck during the food drive or mail it to CPO at 2013 Raleigh Blvd, Raleigh NC 27604-2254

CPO is the largest food pantry in the Triangle.  The Feed-A-Family Food Drive is one of our primary means of meeting the growing need for assistance.  

We’d love to have you join us!  To volunteer at CPO, call our volunteer coordinator at 919-847-1466.
