East Cobb

PORCH East Cobb 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.

Get Involved

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.

Coordinate and/or host a monthly food drive in your neighborhood! 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.

How PORCH Works

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

Once a month, on collection day, leave your food donations on your front porch or 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.
