Micro Pantry

Our library has established a Homer Helps Micro Pantry outside of the library, to the left of the entrance, accessible to the public 24/7. The Micro Pantry is a little free food pantry with non-perishable, unexpired food items, and personal care items. Everyone is encouraged to “take what they need, leave what they can.”

The Homer Helps Micro Pantry was built partially with funding from Homer Township Oak Arbor and Old Plank Trail Community Bank. We thank our generous sponsors and the community for their support and pantry donations.
