to fight hunger
PORCH is an all-volunteer, grassroots hunger relief organization. We collect food and monetary donations through monthly neighborhood food drives to help stock the shelves of our local Orange Congregations in Mission (OCIM) food pantry.
Since its founding in 2010, PORCH has provided $4.8 million in hunger relief across all our communities.Donate
PORCH Hillsborough Programs
Food for Pantries
Once a month we collect non-perishable food items from our network of PORCH neighborhoods and businesses to fill the shelves of our local food pantry.
In 2020 as the Covid pandemic hit, PORCH Hillsborough began working in partnership with the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC to conduct monthly food distributions to local families in need.
Food for Families
Our Food for Families program works in partnership with Weaver Street Market to provide healthy, fresh produce to families identified by school social workers as being at risk of hunger.
Food for Schools
The Food for Schools program provides healthy snacks to hungry students in all 13 public schools in the Orange County School system and the Head Start Program.
