You might be familiar with the Little Free Libraries that have popped up in communities all over the country, but have you heard about something called a Little Free Pantry?
A Little Free Pantry is stocked with food items as well as some toiletries. Anyone can donate items, and anyone who needs the items can access them at any time.
Jack B., an Eagle Scout candidate from the Boy Scouts of America Hawkeye Area Council, decided to install the pantry in his community to help fight food insecurity.
“It’s not one that I want people to worry about,” Jack said. “I think this really encourages just to conserve and keep the idea in mind that you need to give back.”
