'Little Free Pantries' are boxes filled with food stocked by local residents to help those who may have fallen on hard times – and they're popping up all over the world.

What a great idea how about locally. However you always get the cheats like folk I have known that boast about getting free food from charities when they could well afford it.

Unfortunately, in this day and age, where I live in USA, someone would take ALL...

This is to relative rich person guilt. Build a box out in the open for poor people to be publicly exposed and feel embarrassed.
Why not just donate to a charity where people can go in private and keep some dignity?

We'd need a lock in our neighborhood due to raccoons but I guess you could just write get a combo lock and write the combination on the pantry itself for all humans to see!

Was listening to a fab interview on RRR on Tuesday by a woman who runs something similar but particularly for marginalised members of our community. She said one of the best places to leave free food is at bus stops as these are often frequented by people in need and homeless people.

Long ago in France, the farmers would plant peach and apple trees by the road side for the poor people who would leave the cities during the summer months, as a kind of social security.

We already have this at our kindergarten. It is called the abundance basket and you can put harvest, clothes, food etc for anyone to take. Lovely system.

The food sitting in these boxes outside where the temperature from the sun baking down on it, can reach upwards of 100 degrees or more inside.....just like what happens inside a car. That would make it unsafe to eat this food.

I am far too cynical but I can see them getting trashed and the system abused. Wish I was wrong in my thinking. We tried to have bikes available in the inner city of Melbourne and they ended up in the Yarra. I am so disappointed with"some people". Good luck.

Great idea but for those people out there who don't care about people in need of like they would just walk past and take the lot even though they don't need it.
