Unheated front porch roof overhang moisture issue

Hello I have a open front porch roof overhang about 9',closed ceiling boxed in unvented soffit.There is a small crawl space I can access from the garage.The house side has styrofoam board on wall but the roof joists are all frosted up. The space is unvented and unheated but it appears to have heat leaking past the foamboard causing this?

Do you think the soffits should be vented and roof vents installed?
