Our March partner is PORCH
During the March, Vecino’s “Brewing Neighbor” partner is PORCH. PORCH is a local, grassroots, volunteer-driven, hunger-relief organization.
PORCH’s unique Food for Families Program provides healthy, fresh food for 425 local families, who are identified by our school social workers as being at risk for hunger. These families total over 1,800 individuals, including 1,100 children.
The Food for Families program provides three bags of fresh food to each family. These bags include: bananas, potatoes, green beans, apples, broccoli, zucchini, sweet potatoes, onions, peppers, chicken, eggs, milk and much more. This supplemental food can make the difference between a healthy meal and a skipped meal.
