Maginhawa Community Pantry Inspires Generosity Among Filipinos

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It started with one community pantry on Maginhawa Street in Quezon City, and it blossomed into hundreds of similar spots all across the country.

The idea behind the community pantry was for anyone to take anything from the makeshift cart according to need, and for others to donate items according to their capacity.
