Waynesboro Public Library
OVER 280 POUNDS OF FOOD TO THE COMMUNITY SINCE SEPTEMBER 2023!
We are very excited to be partnering with the Waynesboro Public Library to bring you this donosaur themed food pantry. Bear Creek Outdoor Living did it again, by building this spectacular and our largest Little Free Food Pantry yet. This pantry's ribbon cutting was on September 1, 2023 and distributed over 200 pounds of food to the community in just the first two weeks! This pantry features one side for food/household items and one side as a little free library. Both sides, with the concept of "Take what you need, give when you can".
This pantry has a mission that no community member or family would go without a meal. If further resources are needed to help stock community members' home pantries, we have a flyer that lists 29 local food pantries and their information on the back.
We, at The Neighbor Bridge, love to answer why we chose a specific location for our pantries. Libraries offer a welcoming place for people of all walks of life. With all our pantries, we are hoping to steward a place where community members that can and want to give have a place to give, and those that are hungry can grab a meal.
The Waynesboro Public Library is unique in it's location, serving "the tree streets", walking distance to the YMCA, a registered Brite Bus stop, and serves many of our neighbors experiencing homelessness. It was purposefully placed facing East, under two beautiful shade trees near the gazebo. This placement will help protect it and it's contents from the weather and the heat of a Virginia summer.
Those wishing to donate food or books to the Little Free Food Pantry can stock the pantry directly. If you have a larger donation or one that is not able to fit in the pantry, please contact us or drop your donation in the box located in the lobby of the library.
