Little Free Pantries (LFPs) offer a low-barrier access point to food to help fill the gaps in the food system. They support neighbors who are facing food insecurity while building micro-communities. They empower people to make an immediate change in their neighborhood.
As a pantry host, you are committed to regularly stocking your LFP. Keeping the pantry and the area around it clean and asking your neighbors to support the effort too. For a pantry to become a reliable location for food, it needs to stay stocked and seen as an integral part of a neighborhood’s supportive network. Pantries create community through neighbor engagement. Encourage and ask for regular donations from neighbors – post on social media, neighborhood text groups, nearby houses of faiths. The pantry model relies on neighbors to give and receive from it.
