What a cool idea this is!

If you know me, you probably know that I really like to help people.  I like to play music and help people.  Throw in a little painting and you've got me in a nutshell.  Wait... I forgot eating.  Anyway, you get the idea.  I love to be helpful, so when I saw the idea of the "Great Pantry Project," I knew I had to tell you about it so we can both do this!

It's an initiative from the Dupont company who launched the campaign in December of 2020.  Their website said that families throughout the country show that food insecurity has doubled for everyone and for families with children, that number tripled.  Local food banks are addressing the problem to the best of their ability, but they are still not keeping up with the demand in some areas.

I don't want my neighbors to ever go hungry.  That's why I think I'm going to participate in the Great Pantry Project and you can too.

The website gives you all the steps you need, starting with the blueprint and materials.  This looks waaaay too complicated for me to do myself, but I can hand it over to "the guy" or the girl who does that sort of thing for me.  Once you assemble this thing and put it up in your yard or driveway or wherever you want, fill it with things that you think people might need.  Canned goods, toothpaste, toilet paper, pasta, you know.... things that you put in your pantry.  This kit comes with a really cool sign too that says:

Take What You Need, Give What You Can.

I'm sure if you don't want to use the Dupont kit, you could just make your own.  I know my friend Al would just whip up one on his own.  How ever you do it, it will be helping your community to live a better life.
