People Offering Relief for Chapel Hill Carrboro Homes
PORCH is an all-volunteer, grassroots hunger relief organization whose mission is to collect and distribute food for families going hungry in the Chapel Hill and Carrboro community. Through monthly neighborhood food drives, PORCH stocks the shelves of eight local food pantries with canned goods. Its Food for Families program delivers fresh fruits and vegetables, milk, ground beef and eggs directly into the hands of 230 local families in need. And more recently, PORCH provides each of the schools in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro district with healthy snack foods.
Over 3,000 residents living in 130 neighborhoods throughout Chapel Hill and Carrboro now participate in PORCH’s monthly food drives.
Local businesses, foundations, churches, synagogues, schools, and civil organizations are also joining this growing coalition to fight hunger.
Volunteers are needed for PORCH’s next food sort on Monday, November 18. See the schedule for all remaining months in 2013 and 2014.
