How PORCH Fearrington Works

PORCH is built around the very simple idea of a neighborhood food drive. Here’s how it works, in three easy steps:

The three-step process is easy, fast, and it’s also safe.

While plastic bags are OK for the donations, it is a lot easier for our collecting and transferring the food when we arrive at CORA if you use PAPER bags (which are a renewable resource), rather than plastic bags. The contents often fall out of plastic bags, making the handling of large volumes of food more difficult. If plastic bags are easier for you, feel free to use them for your donations. CORA likes to have a supply of plastic bags on hand for people who come for the donated food, so please do donate those empty plastic bags you do not need.

CORA is currently in need of:

  • pasta

  • canned pasta sauce

  • canned fruit in juice

  • cereal

  • spices

Ways to Help

Work With Your Neighborhood Coordinator to Donate Food Each Month +

Donate food items each month when we will pick up food from our neighborhood coordinators. NOTE that coordinators may select an earlier date/time each month to collect or receive donations from their neighbors.

If you are a new donor and do not know who your neighborhood coordinator is, check the ABOUT page where you will find the list of coordinators in our 22 neighborhoods. Each coordinator’s name is hot-linked to their email address. Send them a note and you will be added to their contact list so they can stay in touch with you each month.

Mail a Check to CORA +

If you prefer to send a check, please make it payable to CORA and send it to:

CORA

PO BOx 1326

(If you note “Fearrington PORCH” in the memo space on your check, they will know it came from us.)
