Interesting Fact About the Organization:
The pantry runs on the honor system. Unlike other pantries, it does not ask for proof of residency or income before dispensing a bag of rice. It does not limit how often people can come for food, either. One group of women was spotted going through the pantry twice that Friday; pantry workers said they were allowed to do that as long as they waited in line.
