Stacy Downey saw a need after the 2010 flood in Nashville. Meeting countless individuals who had been displaced by the flood, she realized that access to healthy food was not a widely available resource in the area. Knowing this had to change, The Little Pantry That Could was born.
With the thought that food was a basic need and should be available to anyone, Stacy began serving selflessly the West Nashville area. Today, The Little Pantry opens its doors to people all over Davidson and surrounding counties.
Stacy has lived in the Nashville area for over 15 years. She likes to say her “real job” is in Ophthalmology – a field she has worked in for over 25 years. However, running the Pantry has become another full-time (non paid) job as TLP has grown to do a significant amount of homeless outreach. When she is not working, she is probably in the woods hiking, sitting by a fire with friends or watching drag racing.
She is also the proud human of a rescue dog named Roxy, who makes herself at home each weekend at the pantry, greeting shoppers, accepting treats and offering herself up for frequent ear and belly scratches.
Can Openers, Tents, Sleeping Bags, Socks and Reading Glasses. Monetary gifts and Food donations are always appreciated.
