About Us

PORCH Inc fights food insecurity by creating sustainable hunger relief programs at the local level. Started in 2010 in Chapel Hill, NC, PORCH has grown into a repeatable model of monthly neighborhood food drives and fresh produce distribution supplying food pantries, schools, and community programs across the country. PORCH’s volunteer network of 30 chapters in 9 states, has contributed more than $12 million dollars in hunger relief.

Our Programs

Our flagship program PORCH for Pantries consists of running monthly neighborhood food drives to supply non-perishable goods to local food pantries and families in need. Individual PORCH chapters may choose to participate in additional programs, as their time and resources allow.

Start a PORCH

PORCH is a simple and flexible hunger-relief model that allows volunteers to commit as much or as little time as they have available. It’s very easy to start a PORCH chapter, and with the help of your neighbors in this grassroots effort, you can make a real difference for those who are facing food insecurity in your town or region. Monthly neighborhood food drives run by volunteers are at the heart of what we do.
