This Little Free Food Pantry effort was initiated through The Neo-Political Cowgirls’ annual workshop, January Girls, where participants ages 6-106 gather in art, ally-ship and friendship for a month of Sundays. The intergenerational workshop is free to all who attend and each workshop is led by a different artist where conversation, idea-sharing and the breaking down of population silos brings us into world-building vision with one another. January Girls participants gathered, socially distanced and masked outdoors on January 17th to collect food for the pantry, to listen to pantry best practices shared with us from guest speakers Michael Daly of The Unitarian Universalist Church in Sag Harbor and Penelope Rudder from the North Fork, both who are committed LFFP launchers and caretakers in their communities.


Bill Costello with his Men At Work Construction company donated materials, labor and time to create the pantries for NPC. Support from Charline Spektor allowed us to purchase the needed donation overflow bins for storage and the East Hampton Town Board along with the employees of Human Services joined in partnership to manifest this effort for our community. Without this coming together, this would not have been possible.


Thank you to all who have lent their energy and kindness to our Little Free Food Pantry.


The Little Free Food Pantry movement spans the nation where small pantries with non-perishable food and other necessities within are free 24/7 for anyone to receive from as needed.


The Little Free Food Pantry is a

“Give a cup/Borrow a cup of sugar, neighborly experience where dignity, caring and sharing are put into action for all to support one another as a community collective,”

 -NPC founder and Artistic Director Kate Mueth-


Community can also donate items to the pantry at any time (No dented cans or expired donations, please) and/or sign up to volunteer for a month of a weekly shift to be a pantry caretaker. Community service hours are available for students who sign up to volunteer.

The Neo-Political Cowgirls believe in the marriage of arts and advocacy, continually finding ways to tie both together in order to illuminate and celebrate the human story as a gathered collective. When you donate to NPC, your support goes directly into the tireless work we do. Whether that be exciting new theater devising, creative workshops for youth, women and the underrepresented, arts and advocacy forums, community-building events, or social justice work, your donation works really, really hard to create a far-reaching ripple effect. We make ART a verb.
