How It Works

PORCH is built around the very simple idea of a neighborhood food drive. PORCH Briar Chapel collects food monthly for the Chatham Outreach Alliance (CORA) in Pittsboro.

Here’s how it works:

  • On pickup day (3rd Friday each month), place a food donation on your porch by 9:00 am.
  • A neighbor will come by to pick it up.
  • Our PORCH drivers will drive the donations to CORA for you! It’s that easy!

Food & Donation Information

100% of PORCH Briar Chapel donations go to the CORA Food Pantry or to local school back pack programs that supply food for local students in need.  CORA Food Pantry serves Chatham County residents who are especially in need emergency food assistance.

If you would like to donate food, leave your item(s) on your porch by 9:00 am on the 3rd Friday of the month.
