Founded in May 2010, PORCH is an all-volunteer, grassroots, community-wide hunger relief organization that collects food for the growing number of hungry families in communities through monthly neighborhood food drives. PORCH’s vision is to fill holes in the safety for those living in poverty and struggling with hunger through neighborhood food drives.
Once a month, neighbors place a can of soup, a bag of bean, or a box of cereal on their porch. A neighborhood coordinator goes porch to porch, picks up all of the food, and brings it to a central location for sorting. The food is then quickly delivered to local food pantries.
There are currently 13 communities in five states now organizing monthly neighborhood food drives and PORCH Buckhead is the newest PORCH affiliate.
If you would be willing to serve as our neighborhood coordinator, please send us an email to Buckhead@porchcommunities.org with your email and your neighborhood.
Please consider joining our PORCH! It is one of the easiest ways to give back to our community. You can be a once a month donor or volunteer to help us collect food. There are so many ways to help; please contact us if interested!
How it Works:
Neighborhood Coordinators and Volunteers collect donations usually on the third Thursday of each month. The next pick up will be Thursday, January 14th.
Founded by Kerri Clark and Cathie Bailey, PORCH Buckhead joins the growing network of PORCH affiliates.
