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.

Upcoming Fearrington Community 2021 Collection Dates


May Monthly Food Donation Collection Date

CORA’s SNACK! (Summer Nutritional Assistance for Chatham Kids) program distributes food to more than 1,500 kids who depend upon free or reduced cost meals at school during the school year, but who have little or no replacement for this nutrition when school is not in session. SNACK!’s goal is to increase the accessibility of nutritious meals throughout the summer to children facing food insecurity in Chatham County.   SNACK! provides each participating child with 21 nutritious meals each week mid-June through mid-August.

Consider adding items for CORA’s May SNACK drive to your May PORCH Fearrington Donation, and we’ll deliver your SNACK donation for you as part of our May monthly community collection!

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.

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