Exciting news! Today marks the installation of a Little Free Pantry at HugYourPeople Park, located at 4412 Lee Street. This initiative, also known as a "blessing box," is a testament to the power of community and compassion, providing a 24/7 resource for essential items, including food, for those in need.

Sponsored by the generous owners of Dave Co. Plumbing, David and Cherie Hardin, this Little Free Pantry stands as a beacon of support for our neighbors facing hardships. Unlike traditional food pantries, there are no eligibility requirements or restricted hours of operation – anyone in need can access the box at any time.

The beauty of this initiative lies in its simplicity and inclusivity. It's a testament to the fact that every small act of kindness can create ripples of positive change. The program was initiated by Ethan Jeffus, a Louisiana resident, and supported by the LSU Ag Center. It's truly inspiring how one person's vision can transform into a lifeline for countless individuals.

We invite you to join this community effort by contributing non-perishable food items, hygiene products, or baby essentials to keep the Little Free Pantry stocked. Your donations will make a tangible difference in the lives of someone needing basic food and necessities.

Let's come together as a community to support our neighbors in need. Your generosity and compassion will help sustain this invaluable resource and spread hope and kindness throughout our community.
