Giving Pantry aims to limit panhandling in Highlands

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A new initiative in the Tyler Park hopes to cut down on panhandling at a high traffic corner.

According to the Tyler Park Neighborhood Association, the Giving Pantry is located at the intersection of Grinstead Drive and Bardstown Road – behind the bus stop on the Speedway corner.

It was installed in early December as part of the Bardstown Road Improvement Group’s Vision Block Initiative.

The food pantry concept allows people to take what they need and give what they can.

The association says they’re looking for items that need little to no preparation.
