The staff of Project Outreach and GIANT Food Stores celebrated a successful Bag Hunger Campaign with a $12,533 check presentations at the GIANT stores in Royersford.
The Bag Hunger Campaign ran from February 24 thru March 9 across all 172 GIANT Food Stores with a record-breaking grand total of $794,037 collected from all stores.
Bag Hunger runs twice a year. GIANT Food Store customers donate to their local food bank during checkout through the in-store campaign. Funds collected go to over 100 pantries across the market served by GIANT Food Stores. The Bag Hunger Campaign helps support Project Outreach and Catholic Social Services of Montgomery County’s mission to end hunger in the region.
The next check presentation in Montgomery County taking place as a result of the Bag Hunger Campaign is Catholic Social Services of Montgomery County – Tuesday, March 19th @ 10:30 a.m. with Eli Wenger and Patrick Walsh, Pantry Managers, Catholic Social Services of Montgomery County; Sue Stier, Site Administrator, Catholic Social Services of Montgomery County .
Founded in 1983, Project Outreach was organized by local pastors and laypersons from area churches in order to feed and serve the needy in the Spring-Ford area. As a result, two weekly food distribution sites were developed, one in Royersford and another in Spring City. Project Outreach, with the help of 26 area churches, continues to operate these food pantries and has added many other programs which aid and assist our residents in crisis.
