Front Porch is a free coffee house and community space located just off campus of Cal Poly. We primarily serve the student population of San Luis Obispo. Every Wednesday between March 31 and June 2 (3/31, 4/7, 4/14, 4/21, 4/28, 5/5, 5/12, 5/19, 5/26, 6/2), we will have a food distribution from 4 to 5 for students to pick up ingredients to make a meal for their household at home, or pick up prepared food to take home and share with their household. Food pickups are from our physical location, 1468 E Foothill Boulevard.
At 6, we have a community gathering where we do trivia or facilitate a discussion on current issues in our community at the local or national level. We hold these events either on zoom (zoom ID 805 805 1468) or outdoors and socially distanced at Throop Park. We call this combination of food distribution and discussion/trivia “Front Porch Community Night.”
