What stemmed from an online feature in Scotland, has turned into a blessing in a box here locally. On July 10th, Danny Freeman started the free food pantry in a 4x6 foot metal cabinet behind his cabinet shop in Piedmont.
Freeman said a friend of his got the idea from an online article and the two brainstormed from there. Freeman said the idea behind the pantry is if you have something, leave it, and if you need something, take it.
Freeman said so far, the cabinet is staying full and that he has many stories he can share about how it is blessing people in the community. The food pantry is located behind the cabinet shop on Center Avenue in downtown Piedmont.
