FREE Food Pantry Boxes?

Posted by admin On February 3rd

Anybody dealing with these in their jurisdictions now or in the past?

Homeowners are placing 3 x 5’ wooden structures with double doors in their front yards (Not ROW);  With signs on them advising Free Food.  Anyone needing it can come and go at all hours to retrieve what has been left in the boxes by those willing to donate.

If yes, are they regulated and how?

    I haven’t seen Food Pantry boxes but we do have similar boxes as Lending Libraries where donated books are exchanged. A local resident builds them. Some are on front yards and we have a couple in our parks.

    We have not found it necessary to regulate them.
