I’m seriously considering starting one of these  Great story / Great Idea

In any community, there are those who could use a little extra help, and there are those who are willing to go out of their way to provide that helping hand.

And now, thanks to an organization known as The Little Free Pantry, communities will now have an even easier time lending love and support to their neighbors.

So what exactly is a Little Free Pantry? Just like with the Little Free Library program, folks can stock these mini pantries and others can come take what they need from them anonymously. These pantries can be stocked with everything from canned goods to household products to back-to-school supplies.

And unlike other food pantries, these little structures are always open for business and provide people in need with a bit more privacy.

Scroll through below to see how this incredible program is changing the lives of people around the country, and how these Little Free Pantries are starting to pop up all over!

What do you think of this unique idea? Would you like a Little Free Pantry in your town? Let us know in the comments.

 

About scrapgoldexpert

Long-time business owner. U. S. hard goods mfg. wholesaler marketer etc. semi-retired I was and am a U. S. wire products, (such as housewares, and retail store racks), manufacturer. I had met and far surpassed my financial goals in the period from 1985-1991. So, I reset my goals higher. Then NAFTA hit, decimating U. S. mfg businesses like mine. I then went from 135 employees to 7 in the period from 1992-2010. Big box stores, and Wal-mart took my stocking store, customer base from 4,500+ stores stocking my lines, to approx. 60. Most of those missing previous customers, store-chains, shops, are now importing goods from china, or out of business. Interest rates are currently in clown-ville and have been for a decade plus. Inflation, while also being hidden by package size or design and dollar devaluation are rampant and publicly, understated. All helping to decrease the effectiveness and stability of most retirement income plans. I am growing and regrowing several old and new businesses. The major of which would be Mathews Wire inc. , Wholesale World, and Cash Now. and the minors would be teaching precious metals buying, sharing picking tips, antiques, etc. tips on a youtube channel ScrapGoldExpert, selling on eBay seller; mwire and other various on and off line pursuits.
