Bowling Green Starbucks store serves those in need

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The Bowling Green Starbucks on Scottsville road built a micro pantry two weeks ago behind their store. Store Manager Maria Jones says she got the idea for the pantry when she saw Bowling Green’s micro pantry on Collett Avenue. 

Maria’s daughter, and her daughter’s boyfriend build the pantry. Jones immediately turned to her personal Facebook page asking for donations. Between herself, the store employees and some good Samaritans in the community, Jones said she’s already seen items used from the micro pantry.

“You can come in here and grab stuff to make a meal for your family. There’s snacks on the go. If you are needing just a few things to get you from one day to the next,” said Jones.

To help donate, simply walk up to the micro-pantry behind the Starbucks building located at 2808 Scottsville Road, Bowling Green, Ky. 42104 and place your items inside. The most needed items are baby wipes, hygiene items and non-perishable goods.
