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 organize the collections, and then transport the donated food by car to one of our local food pantries.
