Neighborhood Little Pantry

Updated: Apr 16, 2020

Need a little? Give a little. Got some? Give some.

At 1299 Grow Avenue in front of the William Renton Masonic Lodge and across the street from Bainbridge high school, near the bus stop, stands the little pantry.

Neighborhood Little Pantries are hosted and stocked by the Community.

No questions asked, just free food for those in need.

Donations are always welcome. Donate directly to the pantry.

There's been a consistent rotation for the last year and a half, indicating that our neighbors are both taking items when needed and also restocking the pantry as they're able. Your help to keep the little pantry stocked continues to strengthen our Healthy & Whole Community.

What can I donate?

Any nonperishable food items, including but not limited to:

  • Canned vegetables/fruit, soups, chilis, stews

  • Canned meats: tuna, SPAM, chicken

  • Pastas, boxed pasta meals, macaroni & cheese, ramen noodles

  • Cereals, granola bars, protein bars, fruit snacks

  • Personal care items, toilet paper, paper towels, dish/hand soap

All donations must be:

  • Commercially packaged. (Nothing home baked, home canned, or home vacuumed packed.)

  • Nonperishable. (Not needing any refrigeration.)

  • In sealed original containers. (Nothing open, torn, or repackaged. Cans can not be dented, rusted, spoiled.)

The Little Pantry, a joint project between the Masons and Helpline House, has already become a well used resource in the community.

What a great resource when the food bank is closed OR when you have extra pasta sauce in your pantry to give. Check it out next time you're in the neighborhood -- don't forget to bring those canned soups!
