PORCH For Pantries

PORCH for Pantries

The program that started it all! Volunteers help fill the shelves at their local pantries by collecting non-perishable food items in their neighborhoods once a month. By partnering closely with pantries, PORCH is able to ensure its donations meet the specific health, ethnic and food prep needs of their local communities.

PORCH for Pantries Partners

“PORCH Indy has unified so many neighborhoods in supporting food pantries across our city. Being able to get our top-needed items helps us stock up on what we actually need . . . and get it to the people who really need it.
