Neighbors are transforming the Little Free Libraries across the U.S. into free pantries to assist those experiencing hardships as a result of COVID-19.
These little red boxes are now filled with nonperishable food as an act of kindness to provide meals for those in need. The coronavirus caused many people to become unemployed and unable to buy groceries so this service helps fill that void.
Pantries have been spotted all over the country from New Jersey to Chicago to help neighbors affected by the crisis. Usually, Little Free Library promotes reading and community engagement. The non profit has 100,000 registered book-sharing boxes in 108 countries worldwide.
