About Us

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.

We have been blessed over the years with continuous outpouring of food and financial donations from our community as a whole.  Schools, local businesses, church groups, and families have joined together to enrich us with the ability to help meet these needs.  

Project Outreach does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, religious creed, disability, or age.
