About the Blessing Box


What is a Blessing Box?

The concept is simple. The Blessing Box is a miniature food pantry. It is for receiving items from those who want to donate, and offering to those who need them. Whether you're taking or giving, the Blessing Box is open.  There is no lock on it- it's open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Who is the Blessing Box for?

The Blessing Box is for neighbors helping neighbors. In some areas where there is food insecurity, the Blessing Box is most often for those who are not easily able to meet everyday food and personal needs. In other neighborhoods, the Blessing Box might stock after-school snacks for neighborhood kids or that "cup of sugar" you never have when you need it.  In all places, the Blessing Box is for those who want and/or need to give.

 

How does this Blessing Box differ from other food pantries?

The Blessing Box is small, so it cannot stock the quantity and variety other food pantries can. For this reason, it should not be relied on for meeting every need.

Many food pantries require application before use and have set hours of operation. Anyone may access the Blessing Box at any time.

Food pantries operate as service providers, those who use them as clients. The Blessing Box gets rid of that boundary. Whether stocking or taking items, everyone approaches the Blessing Box the same way, hopefully removing the shame that accompanies need.

Food pantries are critical in addressing food insecurity. But some fall through the cracks. The Blessing Box is a small safety net.
