City of Eugene Cultural Services worked in partnership with Burrito Brigade, local artists from the Urban Canvas roster, local carpenters and community members to create 5 new little free pantries around town. Now, there are 22 Little Free Pantries in Eugene-Springfield. 

The Little Free Pantry (LFP) seeks to support an immediate and local need for food and other essential hygiene products. Little Free Pantries bring neighborhoods together and bridge barriers for those who can’t travel long distances to get free food. The concept started in 2016 when Jessica McClard, a mom in Fayetteville, Arkansas, was inspired by the Little Free Libraries she saw popping up all over her town. There are now 600+ Little Free Pantries around the world. Burrito Brigade started making its Little Food Pantries in August 2018.
