Free Sharing Pantry now open at entrance to police station

Posted

Middletown’s first Sharing Pantry is now open, at the entrance to the borough police station on East Emaus Street.

The free pantry is a place where anyone can go, anytime day or night, to get some basic food items to help them and their family get through the day or the week. The pantry can also be stocked with non-food items like toothbrushes, deodorant, and sanitary napkins.

There is no charge for anything that is in the free pantry. The items are stocked and the pantry is maintained through the generosity of people and organizations.

Borough resident Linda Osifat came up with the idea of having a Little Free Pantry in Middletown. The pantry itself was built by Raul Perez Jr. of Hummelstown, who refurbished an old dresser.

To learn more about the Little Free Pantry, and how you can help keep it going, check out Linda Osifat on Facebook. There is also a website about the Little Free Pantry program nationwide, www.littlefreepantry.org.
