Jennifer Parker’s Overland Park neighbors have been hard at work this holiday season keeping her Tiny Pantry stocked up for local families struggling to keep food on the table.

Located in front of Parker’s home near the busy intersection of 71st Street and Metcalf Avenue, the Tiny Pantry first started as a project in September 2020 as a way to help others during the COVID-19 pandemic.
