Best Pocket Pantry: People’s Pantry

People’s Pantry has utilized out-of-use newspaper boxes (donated by The Cincinnati Enquirer and others) throughout the city for a new purpose: to provide accessible food to low-income folks. Similar to the community lending libraries popping up in cities nationwide, anyone can donate canned food, boxed pasta, non-perishables or toiletries with ease. Just drop it in the box so someone in need can take it. The come-and-go format makes the model accessible and is an easy way to extend some love to the vulnerable in our city.
