The internet is full of “do-it-yourself” ideas that seem easy but turn out to be a frustrating exercise in patience. Not so however, with St. Mary’s Little Free Pantry, launched on September 10 in Wayne, Pennsylvania.

Host a Healthy Food Drive

The Coalition receives phone calls and emails each day from people who want to get involved in the fight against hunger. Most often, people look to volunteer at a local food pantry or soup kitchen. For these requests, we direct volunteers to our Food Pantry Map, which was recently updated and now includes more than 400 food pantries and soup kitchens, many of which could use volunteers to work a shift or serve a meal.
