Little Free Pantry
Managed By: Icon Here Feed My Sheep
Description:
A Little Free Pantry, Blessing Box, or by any other name is what this category is looking for. The idea is simple. The box is a miniature food pantry -- receiving items from those who want to donate, and offering it to those who need them. The most common design is that of the Free Little Library - a post mounted wooden box with a door to protect the contents from the elements. Inside is placed non perishable food items.
Expanded Description:

Little Free Pantries and Blessing Boxes are along the same concept as Little Free Libraries but they are filled with donated, free nonperishable foods and personal hygiene products and left in public locations. The Little Free Pantry utilizes a familiar, compelling concept to pique local interest in and action against local food insecurity. The Little Free Pantry offers a place around which neighbors might coalesce to meet neighborhood needs. The typical Little Free Pantry looks like a Little Free Library but they have their own website and mapping network.

The motto of the Little Free Library might be "Take One, Leave One."

The motto of the Little Free Pantries box would be "Take what you need, Leave what you can."

The preceding is from the Little Free Pantry website

How does the Little Free Pantry differ from other food pantries?
  • The LFP is small, so it cannot stock the quantity and variety other food pantries can. For this reason, it should not be relied on for meeting pervasive need.

  • Many food pantries require application before use and have set hours of operation. Anyone may access the LFP at any time.

  • Food pantries operate as service providers, those who use them as clients. The LFP dissolves that professional boundary. Whether stocking or taking stock, everyone approaches the LFP the same way, mediating the shame that accompanies need.

  • Food pantries are critical in addressing food insecurity. But some fall through the cracks. The LFP is a safety net.

  • The LFP is a proving ground, testing concepts like community, charity, justice, and sharing economy.
