Altoona Girl Scout Troop Helps Bring Another ‘Little Free Pantry’ to Des Moines Metro Area
ALTOONA, Iowa -- You may have seen one before. They are popping up all over the Des Moines Metro. It's Little Free Pantries, and on Sunday a new one is opening up in Altoona thanks to Girl Scouts From Troop 296. Troop leader Heidi O'Brien says it's a similar concept to little free libraries except instead of books, it's food that people can take or donate as they please. It's located outside the Altoona Public Library and is open every day, at all hours.
