This is a cute way of giving back this holiday season which appears to be catching on around metro Atlanta.

Residents are swapping out their “Little Free Libraries” this season for “Little Free Pantries.”

Instead of stocking box’s shelves with books, folks are stocking up on containers on non-perishable food.

The idea is similar to the “Little Free Libraries” where visitors can take what they need and leave what they want.

Some residents said it is a novel idea that is welcoming to everyone this holiday season.
