ASHLAND, Ore. — The First Presbyterian Church in Ashland officially opened up its "little free pantry" on Sunday morning. The little free pantry is a national movement, meant to encourage sharing resources and helping out folks who need basic food items.
It took the church 6 months and more than $500 from members within the church to build the 2-foot by 4-foot box that holds non-perishable food items with an unlocked door, for people to come take or donate as they please. “Take what you need, share what you can” is the motto.
The church is asking for people to donate food if they can but they will have deacons monitoring the pantry each day to make sure it is stocked and that it remains neat and accessible.
The little free pantry is located at: 1st Presbyterian Church of Ashland, 1615 Clark Ave, Ashland, OR 97520
