The Augusta County Library
Little Free Food Pantry
OVER 1260 POUNDS OF FOOD TO THE COMMUNITY SINCE APRIL 2023!
In partnership with Bear Creek Outdoor Living and the Augusta County Library in Fishersville, this Little Free Food Pantry was brought to life and planted in the community in April 2023. This 36''x36'' 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 Augusta County Library homes not one, but two, Brite Bus stops. The Staunton Loop Bus Stop is about ten feet away from our Little Free Food Pantry, the other Brite Bus Stop is located in front of the library for the Waynesboro Loop. With these two bus stops, community members with transportation barriers will be able to access the pantry. It was purposefully placed facing Northeast, under a beautiful shade tree. 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.
