HOW TO INSTALL A COMMUNITY CUPBOARD/LITTLE PANTRY

Do you know that 1 in 4 children and 1 in 6 adults go hungry in Santa Cruz County?  We’ll show you how to build a sturdy cupboard/pantry to share food from your curbside. We’ll also discuss the social and emotional benefits of this sharing economy device that builds local resilience as it reduces food insecurity. Bonnie Linden and Bianca McCauley both host Cupboards/Pantries at their homes.
