  • LITTLE FREE PANTRY PROJECT

    Take what you need, give what you can.

    Anyone can donate to, or take from, a Little Free Pantry. Boxes are being placed throughout Putnam County, Indiana. Non-perishable food, toiletries, and school supplies are always needed! Consider adopting a busy pantry, or contact us for plans to build your own pantry in under-served areas.

    Star Seeds is a collection site for the Little Free Pantry Project. We help stock the downtown free pantries and provide a community fridge for perishable items.

    Building community

    Building and stocking free pantries is a great way to get kids and students involved directly in community aid. When young people see the pantries getting used, they begin to realize the extent of local food insecurity.

    Public aid + public art

    Little Free Pantries can function as pieces of public art that can be enjoyed by everyone. Stay tuned for portable community garden beds that will add produce to our collection of free pantries in 2023!

    Getting involved

    Volunteers are always needed to source food for Little Free Pantries, distribute the food stored at Star Seeds, and to make sure the pantries are clean and well maintained. Contact us for more information about volunteering.
