PORCH volunteers are the heart and soul of our work and we always welcome more helping hands!

Volunteer Opportunities

Neighborhood Coordinator

Time Commitment: 2 hours per month

We have more than 125 Neighborhood Coordinators who organize monthly food collections for a neighborhood or street. They are responsible for spreading the word about the designated day for the monthly food drives, picking up donations from neighborhood porches, and getting the non-perishable bags of food to a central location.
