Neighbors Helping Neighbors At Tiny Food Pantries All Over Town

Lisa Andrews

Brightly painted, repurposed newspaper boxes are popping up all over Cincinnati. Inside you won't find papers but non-perishable items for anyone in need. Lisa Andrews started her first tiny food bank called the "People's Pantry Cincy" in Pleasant Ridge. With a grant from People's Liberty, Andrews is branching out to 10 local neighborhoods, including Walnut Hills. The recent closing of Kroger has created a food desert in that community.

Here to discuss the neighborhood pantries and innovative food solutions are People's Pantry Cincy founder Lisa Andrews; Church of the Advent Reverend Stacy Salles and Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation Healthy Outreach Coordinator Gary Dangle.
