Overview and metadata sections

Street Outreach is a Bi-College (Haverford and Bryn Mawr College) service club which seeks to provide food access for Philadelphians struggling with food insecurity. The group meets once a week to prepare and deliver soup, sandwiches, and more to Philadelphians through community organizations. While the group mainly focuses on addressing homelessness and food insecurity, they are dedicated to pursuing community service as a whole.

The collection contains email printouts sent to the club's mailing list. They include announcements about club events in poetic, dramatic or prosaic form.

This collection also includes 27 digital images and documents related to the group. For the most part, this part of the collection is made up of various posters for events that the group organized between 2020-2021, as well as pictures taken from these events, and some documents relating to the history and functioning of the group.

The materials are arranged chronologically.
