Donate Food

How to Donate Food

If you live in a PORCH neighborhood, please check with your Neighborhood Coordinator about when to leave donated bags of food on your porch. (If you need to be put in touch with your Neighborhood Coordinator, please fill out this brief form.)

While your Neighborhood Coordinator will give you specific instructions, you can anticipate donating non-perishable food donations in the week prior to the published Sort Dates. After collecting the food, Neighborhood Coordinators will transport it to Extraordinary Ventures for sorting and delivery to pantries and families.
