our story

hey y'all, we are leslie and bruce schlernitzauer, owners of porcupine provisions catering in charlotte, north carolina. and this is our daughter megan, who takes care of all things social media, website, graphic design, and many of our deliveries for both gathered and porcupine.

gathered was our “pandemic pivot" as we like to call it. while we have continued to pivot since 2020 to best serve you, our mission has remained the same: to bring you thoughtfully curated bunches, groceries, meal kits, and gift boxes while supporting our friends, small local businesses, and charlotte area non-profits along the way. we believe that now more than ever, our small local businesses and community need our support. all items from our online collection include as many local lovelies as we can gather from our local farmers and producers with some added touches such as house made relishes, and a board for your cheese. 

most importantly we whole heartedly believe that our charlotte community always needs our help. in continuation of our love of cooking for a cause, a portion of each months sales will go towards providing meals for families in need through a different local charity chosen each month. 

we love to get creative with our clients to create the perfect gift or dinner for any occasion. email us today to get started.
