On The Porch Tulsa Expands To Serve Food To Families In Need In 10 Towns

TULSA, Oklahoma -

A nonprofit that feeds hungry families is a little more than a year old, but it is expanding - again.  On the Porch Tulsa now serves 10 cities, including two new locations in Bartlesville and Wagoner.

Groceries for 50 families, in 30 minutes or less.

"Let me put it bluntly, we know every store in Tulsa and who has what for what price," said Peter Kubow with On the Porch Tulsa. 

It sounds like a game show challenge, but it is just a Monday morning for Kathleen and Peter Kubow.

"Pet food, diapers, formula, whatever a family would need for five or seven days," said Peter. 

Life Change Tulsa is a nonprofit started by the Kubows. As part of the nonprofit’s mission, On the Porch Tulsa relies on groups of volunteers to bring bags of groceries to the porches of families in need all over the area. And it no longer serves just Tulsa.

"Tulsa is just an amazing city that just comes together to help everybody in need," said Peter. 

The only way they can continue to expand and serve people is if they have enough volunteers to run the routes, pack the boxes and help do the work. The couple said they want to keep this momentum growing until the need is met.

"I raised four kids and there were times we didn't have food and people helped us. So, now that our kids are gone, it is our turn," said Peter. "It is not too late; you can do this. you have just got to start."
