Mission Statement

Little Free Pantries provide a viable, low barrier, 24/7, non-judgemental access point to food and they empower people to make immediate change toward their neighborhood. Neighbors give what they can by placing food, hygiene, or paper items inside the pantry. Anyone who needs those items can freely take from the pantry, without judgement.

Description

The aim of The Little Free Pantries Project is to foster the cooperation of neighbors to address immediate and local needs surrounding food insecurity. Little Free Pantries work alongside more established models such as food banks and offer a low-barrier access point to food while helping fill the gaps in the system

We believe our neighborhoods are the core to any healthy community and by providing more accessible points for healthy, culturally relevant foods, as well as opportunities for neighbors to help neighbors, our neighborhoods strengthen. The opportunity for culturally desired and healthy food access is possible through this form of direct giving, by neighbors and for neighbors.

We believe food resources should be available to all regardless of need. Little Free Pantries are a mode to deliver food through mutual aid, allowing us to function as neighbors in solidarity rather than charity, ensuring the organizing effort is mutually beneficial and all people are cared for. A goal of The Little Free Pantries Project is to create a community-rich place where food is seen as a shared resource through social practice rather than as a private good and through this action, communities connect and become stronger.
