LITTLE FREE PANTRY & PUBLIC GARDENS

The Little Free Pantry is open for public use, but for your safety, we ask only a few things:

1. Take what you want, leave what you can.
2. DO NOT add sharp items or drugs/alcohol.
3. Take at your own risk (please watch for hornets in the warmer seasons!)

We also offer three raised garden beds on the South side of the building, close to the LFP, for you to access. When things are ready to be picked, please help yourself! The raised beds on the North side of the building belong to the Hortocultural Society's Community Garden Program and are not open to the public.

Thank you for your cooperation! Stay safe and healthy!
