We've got a few pantries here in this Texas County. Although one or two have been completely cleaned out, they work surprisingly well. Impressive. They are sort of tucked away, as much as possible on public locations, to maintain the dignity of the folks who use them. Just enough exposure to ensure they are not vandalized. The ones that were cleaned out that time left people in need doing without. They get a lot of support and are very well maintained by volunteer labor. Stores provide significant discounts to those making purchases.

Seems like a win win 99 percent of the time.
Our ancestors gave us this. They fought to make it what it is. All we have to do is defend it.
