Read the Below Story of an innovative way to meet your community’s needs!

The Little Free Pantry was an idea that started in May of 2016 in Fayetteville, AR, to support those dealing with food insecurity. The goal of this project was to bring the community together to provide easily accessible foods and goods to local individuals in need.

In most food pantries, you may be required to fill out an application or bring a photo ID. They also have set hours of operation restricting individuals looking for food support. The Little Free Pantry provides 24/7 access to food, without having to fill out any information.

With multiple locations, more people have an opportunity to obtain these goods if unable to walk or drive to a local food pantry center. The convenience of this project ensures everyone has access to free food and useful items no matter the circumstance.

Little Free Pantries have officially launched in Omaha by a local couple Steve and Vicki! So far they have reach out to neighborhood associations and the response has been tremendous!

They have completed several pantries to date and are planning to ramp up production shortly, as they would love to place as many as possible prior to the 2017 Neighborhoods USA conference!

Check out their website here! and their facebook page here!

Two easy ways to get involved is to:

  1. If you would like to have a pantry on your property, fill out the application on their site! They will build and install the pantry, and you will be responsible for stocking it throughout the year.
  2. If you are unable to have a Little Free Pantry on your property, you can still help stock the currently installed pantries with food and personal items!
