PORCH Hillsborough is a dynamic community of volunteers committed to fighting hunger in northern Orange County, North Carolina. Our simple, sustainable programs provide non-perishable and fresh food to children and families who need it through food drives to support the local pantry, produce deliveries to at-risk families, food distributions in underserved communities, and the purchase of healthy snacks for hungry kids in our schools.

Thank you so much for supporting our efforts!

We surpassed our goal of adding 30 new sustainers in 30 days and every one of your contributions makes a difference in our community. Our deepest gratitude to you for supporting PORCH Hillsborough!

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.  

Food Distributions

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.
