New Pantries, Volunteer Efforts Target Food Insecurity in Athens

You’re likely to see more small blue boxes like the one shown above on street corners around Athens. They’re part of a project called the “Little Free Pantry,” which was recently established by the Athens Chamber of Commerce. The goal is to supplement the larger food pantries in the area by setting up small boxes stocked with food and other goods for anyone in need. Volunteers will set up and manage little pantries in more than a dozen locations around town. This brings food and other important goods closer to the people who need them most, according to Chamber of Commerce officials.
