As reported in The Christian Science Monitor

Jessica McClard was on one of her regular runs when she noticed a Little Free Library in Fayetteville, Arkansas -- her hometown. She decided to create similar libraries for those with food insecurity. Her invention would be called a Little Free Pantry.

Like a Little Free Library, her Little Free Pantry is a cabinet with a door and shelves -- all mounted on a post. She put one up near her church in May, 2016, and within months, more than 100 Little Free Pantries had opened across the country. Today there are hundreds in the United States, as well as about 3,000 Little Free Pantry's worldwide. Anyone can take from a pantry, or donate to a pantry.
