What We DoGet Involved

PORCH Charlotte is an all-volunteer, grassroots hunger relief organization whose mission is to collect and distribute food for all those experiencing food insecurity in the Charlotte community.

Participating Neighborhoods

We collect in the following neighborhoods. If you don’t see your neighborhood listed, we would love to add you to our list! Email us for more information and how to set up a collection in your neighborhood.

How PORCH Works

PORCH is built around the simple idea of a neighborhood food drive. Here’s how it works:

Once a month, on collection day, leave your food donations on your front porch or at the designated front porch (or garage) in your neighborhood.

Volunteer neighborhood coordinators host the collection sites, and then transport the donated food by car to one of our local food pantries.
