Here is a letter to the council should you wish to start up your own pantry for the homeless. Homelessness is growing more and more each day and its about time that we put an open food pantry in most councils and cities. So here is a sample of a letter that you can use to help you get started
Dear Council (insert the name here),
My name is (insert name here) and I work with homeless people. I have an idea about having an open food pantry where people can put their unwanted food stuffs in there. Homeless people can just help themselves to the pantry.
The benefits for you would be reducing the cost of homelessness and mental health issues that happen in your area. The pantry is not that expensive to set up as you can buy most of the stuff from your local hardware store and there are volunteers that can help you. Once it is run you can donate food and toiletries
All the pantry needs is just your approval on your land and in your council,
Hope to hear from you soon,
We hope that this letter helps you to open your own pantry which is not that hard to do. You just need a small space, some volunteers, a permit and some materials from the hardware store.
