PORCH Swansboro is an all-volunteer, grassroots hunger relief organization. We collect food and cash donations through monthly neighborhood food drives, and then distribute food to hundreds of at-risk families in our community.
PORCH Swansboro started when the chapter leader’s daughter asked what she could do to help bring people food when they might not have any. She inspired her mom to reach out to PORCH about starting a new chapter! The Chapter is NEW in 2021, and we look forward to many years of service to the community.
- Participation is easy: on a given date people leave their donations on their front porch for volunteers to collect.
- Participation is ongoing: donors can participate every month OR just during the months of their choosing. There’s no pressure, no advance commitment.
- The impact is local: all of our donations help individuals and families in the Swansboro, Hubert, and surrounding communities!
- Everyone and anyone can participate: just like our recipients, donors are not asked about political or religious affiliations. This program is just about those who CAN, helping those in NEED!
We hope to grow and add many more communities to our team.So, please join us and enjoy the great feeling of giving all year long!

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 Onslow County Community Outreach
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.
Become a Neighborhood Coordinator and help us offer this program to YOUR Swansboro neighborhood! We are seeking individuals with reliable transportation to collect pantry items and deliver them to our local sorting site.
Do you prefer organizing? We are looking for volunteers to help us sort items once a month.
