“For me, PORCH food helps a lot. If my family did not have PORCH, we would not be able to stay ahead of rent and other bills.”

Cash donations are critical to helping PORCH get food to local families, schools, and pantries. Our bags of fresh food typically last about nine days, depending on the size of the family, and for many of our neighbors, the supplemental food can mean the difference between a healthy meal and no meal at all.

Every dollar makes a meaningful difference in our work.

$15 provides milk and eggs for two families
$25 provides a monthly grocery gift card for a family
$50 provides a 9-day supply of fresh food for one family

$75 provides fresh food and grocery gift card for one family
$300 provides produce for a family for six months
$600 provides a year supply of produce for a family

$900 provides fresh food and gift cards for a family for a year

Our Food for Schools program provides healthy snack foods to all 19 Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools, the pre-K/Headstart program in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro district, and two after-school programs (the Family Resource Center and Boomerang). A sponsorship to fund healthy snacks at one school for the entire school year is $1,000. Sponsors are recognized on our website, in our impact report, through social media, and with decals on storefronts.
