My group project was to collect feminine hygiene products

For my group project, we set out to collect feminine hygiene products

What does "set out" in the second sentence mean? Do the two sentences have the same meaning?

The first and second sentences do not have the same meaning. The second sentence might appear in the following:


For my group project, we decided on gathering feminine hygiene products for free distribution to students. And then we set out (that is, "started") to gather them.
