Little Free Pantry
Century League's Little Free Pantry
The Century League opened its Little Free Pantry on the grounds of City Hall on May 30, 2017. Anyone can make donations to the Little Free Pantry by leaving items in the box for others to take as needed.
Accepted donations include nonperishable or long-lasting food items and hygienic items. For safety reasons, no liquids or glass will be permitted, with the exception of liquid soaps and toothpaste. Century League members will regularly check the contents of the pantry to ensure that items in the box follow the guidelines.
Donations can be made to the pantry at any time or to members of the Century League who can stock the pantry as the need arises. Donations that cannot fit inside the Little Free Pantry with the door closed cannot be left at the pantry site. A list of items suitable for donating will be kept inside the pantry for anyone to take and include the following:
The Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act of 1996 protects individual donors and the overseeing nonprofit organization from donations made in good faith that may unintentionally cause damages to a consumer. Read more here.
The Century League wants to extend our thanks to Mayor Lipsmeyer and City Council for their help in making this project possible. Also, we wouldn’t have a Little Free Pantry at all without the help of Josh Hoelzeman who built the pantry and the generous donation of supplies by Haynes Home Center. Thank you all for your support.
Information about the first Little Free Pantry, which was opened in 2016 in Fayetteville, can be found at www.littlefreepantry.org. If you have questions about Morrilton's Little Free Pantry, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The freestanding pantry is located southeast of the Morrilton City Hall and Police Department. It will remain open at all times for people to “take what you need, leave what you can,” as stated in wording on the box. Everything in the pantry is free to take, no questions asked, by anyone at any time.
