A PORCH in every community

Fight Hunger One PORCH at a Time!

PORCH Communities fights food insecurity through neighbors helping neighbors, from the North Carolina coast all the way to the midwest. Since 2010, local PORCH chapters have run food collections to fill the gaps in the food bank system. Our vision is to have a PORCH in towns across America. The PORCH Communities team provides a proven model and offers ongoing support to local leaders to make this a reality.

The Impact of Neighbors Helping Neighbors

You might be surprised at how effective a volunteer-based organization can be at fighting hunger at the local level. The PORCH neighborhood food-drive model has been remarkably successful at getting food into the hands of people who need it.
