The Porch, located on the south side of 30th Street Station, is one of Philadelphia's premiere public spaces. The Porch features lunch from rotating food trucks, pop-up performances, lush landscaping, outdoor drinks Wednesday-Friday, and plenty of places to relax.

From December 4th through December 22nd we are hosting a special, holiday pop-up in the center of The Porch at 30th Street. The pop-up will enliven UCD's flagship public space while contributing to the fight against homelessness in Philadelphia. Read more about our collaboration with Project HOME and Schmear It here.

The Porch hosts food trucks for lunch Monday through Friday from 11:30am to 2pm, plus breakfast on Thursdays from 7am to 9:30am. 

Stay up to date on food trucks, performances, and other special events by following The Porch on Twitter and Facebook
