Hunger is a Year-
Round Issue

What We DoGet Involved

PORCH North Brunswick is an all-volunteer, grassroots hunger relief organization. We collect food and cash donations through monthly neighborhood food drives and deliver the contributions to food pantries who provide emergency food to individuals and families in our area.

We held our first food drive in January 2020 in the Shelmore neighborhood of Brunswick Forest in Leland, NC, and have grown since then. Our partner food pantries include Brunswick Family Assistance, Brunswick Senior Resources Inc., Hope Harbor Home, and Manna Ministries, in Leland, and Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard in Wilmington.

The PORCH collection model simplifies the donation process as it brings the food drive to your neighborhood. We are currently holding food drives on the 4th Friday of the month (except in November and December when it is the 3rd Friday).

Our Impact

In 2020, we collected nearly 9 1/2 tons of food and almost $11,000 in cash donations. One small donation at a time, together we can make a big difference in feeding the hungry in our communities.    

How Porch Works

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

  • Once a month, on collection day, drop off your food donations at the designated front porch (or garage) in your neighborhood.
  • Volunteer neighborhood coordinators host the collection sites, and then transport the donated food by car to one of our local food pantries.

 

Volunteer

Be a neighborhood coordinator – Coordinate and/or host a monthly food drive at your house. Email neighbors and post on your neighborhood social media about the collection and items needed by the partner pantry. Then, take the donated items to your designated food pantry.

Donate food – Contact us and we will let you know if there is a coordinator in your neighborhood or where the closest drop-off location is that month.
