Mini Pantry Movement Helps the Hungry
Modeled after Little Free Libraries & Here in Seattle
Food-sharing Little Free Pantries are designed to help neighbors in need. Pantries are filled with non-perishable items. Launched in 2016 this grassroots movement has been growing nationally and internationally.
In the Columbia City neighborhood of Seattle, Molly Harmon, a personal chef has had a Little Free Pantry in front of her home for nearly six years. Harmon received a small grant from the Awesome Foundation and used it to build six more Little Free Pantries placed throughout her neighborhood. The community loved the idea and with the help of a GoFundMe campaign Harmon was able to raise funds to build 26 more Little Free Pantries. Read the full story from the Seattle Times here.
