Additionally, we provide fresh food and grocery gift cards to local families in need for healthy and relevant choices for their nutritional needs.

Through regular neighborhood food drives, PORCH Raleigh provides sustenance and resources to Wake County families that are struggling with hunger. We gather non-perishable food items from Raleigh residents’ porches and distribute them to a number of hunger relief initiatives, such as BackPack Buddies, school food pantries, and neighborhood pantries. Additionally, we build awareness around the issues that create food insecurity in our community, and raise money to provide grocery gift cards and fresh produce to give healthy and relevant options to people at risk of hunger.
