Have you seen what’s Stirring outside our new food hub? A collection of benches, native plants, and a community pantry have popped up outside The Stir, 185 Royal Ave – and we need your help to keep this space functional for our community to enjoy!
The Stir is looking for folks who want to adopt care-taking tasks for the community pantry or parklet. This adoption doesn’t require a big time commitment or a certain schedule; whenever you have time to come take a peek in the pantry, dust its shelves, and make sure no one has accidentally left a perishable item inside will help us maintain the integrity of this pantry. You can also choose to bring your own non-perishables to put inside the pantry, or help acquire non-perishable donations from other folks and organizations in our community!
Task you can adopt on your daily walk past The Stir, include:
- Picking up garbage you see in the Parklet and/or inside the pantry
- Sweeping the Pavement mural
- Wiping down the benches
- Ensuring there are no perishables in the pantry and that its shelves are clean
- Donating non-perishable items to the pantry
Some of these tasks require equipment that we may be able to provide if staff are onsite. We recommend Parklet Adopters come with their own cleaning supplies if they’re in the mood for a deeper cleaning day!
