How Porch Works
PORCH is built around the very simple idea of a neighborhood food drive.
Here’s how it works, in three easy steps:
- Once a month, on a designated day, residents place a food donation of individual sized-portions on their front porch.
- A volunteer neighborhood coordinator goes porch to porch and picks up the food donations.
- The donated food is transported by car to a central location where it is sorted, packed and then delivered to Pender County’s local food banks.
The three-step process is easy and it’s also efficient. With the help of dedicated volunteers, all the food collected from the many neighborhood food drives moves from porch to pantries in just a few hours’ time. From there, it goes to individuals and families who struggle with food insecurity.
