Point to Polygon distance

I have 2 layers:

  1. Point layer of outlets

  2. polygon layer of outlet catchment area

There is an outlet_ID attribute on both layers.  Several polygons in the catchment layer make up the catchment for one outlet, so there will be several polygons with the same outlet_ID.

The outlet point is not necessarily in the middle of the catchment area.

Is it possible to work out the distance from the outlet point to the farthest edge of the catchment?
