Free Little pantry

Free Little Pantries are a method of providing emergency short term resources in high need food deserts. The pantry is utilized by the community as needed with the intention of connecting to a food bank when available.  Each location has a sign: take what you need and leave what you can.  


LOCATIONS


   “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person? Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions." 1 John 3:16-18
