About

The unofficial motto of Little Free Pantry is, "A single LFP is little. Lots might be big." LFP grows every time a person engages the concept, so THANK YOU! Thanks for being the kind of person that checks out a service project. 

I launched the Little Free Pantry Pilot in May 2016 in Fayetteville, AR, my hometown. Inspired by Little Free Library, the concept is simple: a box on a post into which anyone may place food and personal care items available to anyone any time. Since launch, the project has been replicated hundreds, maybe even a thousand times across the country and internationally. 

Demand outpaces supply everywhere. Because most project partners (those who admin projects) are individuals or unincorporated groups, they can't receive tax-exempt donations, including in-kind donations from grocery stores. By Fall, I will launch PantryGift.org, an online giving marketplace, to help out. 

For LFP, though, I am committed to grassroots organizing; I don't want anything in the way of feeding neighbors and nourishing neighborhoods. In other words LFP isn't an organization. It’s FREE, and I like it that way, even if it means I don’t get paid like an executive director would.

By joining this community, you can be a part of the work of Little Free Pantry (Blessing Box, Community Food Box, and LFPs other iterations) and PantryGift.org, too! 

Feed neighbors! Including me!


Goals
$204.35 of $500 per month
When I reach $500 per month, I'll throw an LFP party! I'll stock a project with Patron-suggested, party-themed items.
