People are encouraged to share what they can at new community pantry

Menzshed volunteers were called on to supply materials and build this pantry.

Sarah Hughes, 17, hopes the shelves of her community pantry at Memorial Park will be filled with goodwill.
The founder of a community pantry hopes it will encourage people to show their generosity and help out people in need.
Freyberg High School student Sarah Hughes has placed a set of shelves set up a community pantry on Fitzroy St, near Memorial Park, in Palmerston North.
People with produce or preserves to spare are encouraged to leave them in the larder, and those who are struggling can call on it when they need to.
Sarah, 17, was inspired by the P?taka Kai movement, a nationwide scattering of community pantries.
