We love to see all the ways that people are giving back and helping each other out during the pandemic. And one of the coolest initiatives in Seattle is the city’s little free pantry system. They’re kind of like everyone’s favorite little free libraries but full of necessary supplies and food.

In case you didn’t know, there are 120 little free pantry boxes in Seattle. They’re located in various neighborhoods and you can find them conveniently mapped right here. And not only are they a great way to ensure that people get what they need but they also build community.

The community aspect is incredibly important as it’s something Seattle has kind of lost in recent years. And the little free pantry system is an excellent reminder to those who need help that their neighbors do care. Plus it’s a way for pantry builders to give back.

So if you’re looking for something good to do in the new year you should consider building a pantry for your neighborhood. Or you can also donate to the movement and ensure that other neighborhoods get a pantry.
