INDIANAPOLIS — The pandemic has accelerated the demand for donated food in Central Indiana.

Now, there is a new way to drop off food and pick some up, if you're in need.

It's called the Little Free Pantry, and if it looks like a newspaper box, that's because it once was.

The concept is much like the little free libraries you see around town. Donations can be made simply by placing dry bulk and pantry good foods in the box. Those in need then come by and pick up what's available.

The pictures with this story were taken at the box on Virginia Avenue by the South Split, just southeast of downtown.
