HOW IT BEGAN
During the COVID-19 pandemic, with grocery costs rising, we decided to start a Little Free Pantry. It's motto was the same as other similar pantries: "Take what you need; leave what you can". It was an immediate hit, with villagers keen to contribute.
WHERE WE ARE NOW
Costs keep rising, and the pantry empties nearly daily. We found that if we left it to casual donations, the shelves would be empty.
But we were fortunate to be able to gather donations from individuals and organizations that help us keep it going!
