Little Free Pantry

What is a Little Free Pantry?

It is not an organization or a nonprofit. It is run by neighbors who feel called to help other neighbors.
The Little Free Pantry (LFP) movement was started in Arkansas several years ago by a woman named Jessica McClard, who built a wooden box on a post containing food, hygiene products, and paper items and it was accessible to everyone all the time, no questions asked. Several months later, the LFP movement had spread throughout the country and across the globe.

Our Little Free Pantry
St. Tim’s is proud to host a LFP, located by the northern Grant Rd. driveway entrance. The LFP is intended to help with immediate and local needs of necessary items. It is for the community, by the community; anyone can donate items and anyone can take items. Stop by anytime. The pantry is always open.

How can you help?

Monitor the pantry

Please sign up for one week to monitor the Little Free Pantry for cleanliness and dispose of any perishable or unsafe donations. This is vital to maintaining a helpful and safe resource for our neighbors. Stop by during the week as your schedule allows. Any visit is better than no visits! It is not necessary to stock the pantry yourself during your monitoring week, but you may add donations if you wish. Thank you for being a blessing to the community! Please use this form to volunteer.


Donations of non-perishable groceries and personal hygiene products are always welcome. See examples here. Please ensure donated items have not expired or been damaged. Canned items that are “easy open” with pull-top lids are helpful for those who may not have access to a can opener.
