DTDL is committed to providing information and access to help with culinary literacy and food insecurity in our community. Our Seed Library, Little Free Fridge, and Little Free Pantries are tools used to facilitate growing, harvesting, and sharing as a community. We accept donations for these efforts throughout the year.
How it works is simple: Take what you need. Give what you can.
Little Free Fridge
Our Little Free Fridge is located inside the library and is open during library business hours.
Little Free General Store and Little Free Pantry
Our Little Free General Store and Little Free Pantry are located outside the main doors of the building and are always open.
How to Give
Do you have whole, uncut fresh fruits and vegetables at home that won’t be eaten? Is your garden producing more than you need? Donate to our Little Free Fridge! Pre-packaged, shelf-stable foods and personal items can be donated to our Little Free Pantry and Little Free General Store, located outside the main doors of the building. All donations can be placed directly inside the fridge, pantry, or general store as appropriate. Specific donation suggestions are below.
