Free Little Pantry in the Garden

A group of 8th grade Berkeley Carroll students and their teachers delivered a Little Free Pantry to our garden on June 1st as part of a community action project.

The 15 x 15 x 26 pantry was built by the students and will be stocked with non-perishable items for the benefit of our neighbors.  The pantry follows the well-known model of the Little Free Libraries seen around the city. PHCF also has a Victory Garden fresh food giveaway every Sunday.  The Victory Garden and food pantry are our modest efforts to address food insecurity in our neighborhood.
