    LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) -- A new addition is making a big impact in downtown Lynchburg.

    If you pass by Lynchburg Daily Bread, you just might catch the new "Little Free Pantry," which made its debut on Monday.

    The idea is to "take what you need, leave what you can."

    It's part of a national movement modeled after the popular "Little Free Library."

    People can drop off food or toiletries around the clock.

    Since the soup kitchen is only open during certain hours, volunteers wanted to allow people to have what they need when they need it.

    "This will provide an opportunity for those who may have excess of something from another pantry or something that they need to drop off as well, so the community can work together through this," said Megan Huffman, a Daily Bread volunteer.

    Volunteers with the soup kitchen and Vector Space made the local pantry possible.

    They're looking for more volunteers to help keep it stocked throughout the year.

    If you'd like to help keep it stocked to ensure food is always available at Daily Bread, call 434-845-5703.
