Ascending Koi Tattoo Collective launched the initiative last week after a staff member noticed a tiny pantry in a community while travelling in the United States.
They are hoping the idea catches on and spreads through the city the same way as the little free libraries have.
“I'm hoping that people see these things out in their community and say I could build one of those it's kind of like those free libraries. One popped up and now they are everywhere and my hopes are that would happen with the free pantry project,” said Marie Ferraro, from Ascending Koi.
