Holt food pantry on a mission to help families

Posted at 4:58 PM, Jul 29, 2020

HOLT, Mich. — One Mid-Michigan community is on a mission to help families who are experiencing food insecurity amid the pandemic.

The efforts are driven by an organization called Little Free Food Pantries. Little Free Food Pantries is located in Holt, Michigan. The name of the organization is based on a twist on the notable Little Free Library Movement.

Holt community leaders are placing a new pantry at the corner of Holt and Aurelius in front of the Holt United Methodist Church; making this pantry the sixth one.

All in all, it is a labor of love for Holt brothers Isaac and Simon Menold.

“It feels good. It makes me know that I’m actually helping the community with something,”said Simon Menold.

There are six little free food pantries scattered around Holt. Each of them are restocked twice a day.
