Service Calling for Little Free Pantries in Texomaland




This is a call to action for a Texomaland food-raising campaign to unite young people, fishing and hunting guides, bird hunting and wildlife viewing rangers, writers and artists, and anyone who can interest a young person in their business as an adventure to join this food-raising effort.

The plan is to teach young people the benefits of giving up valuable time in exchange for a reward like a guided hunting or fishing trip, an afternoon with an artist of any genre, or anyone who would like to give back in the form of interest and mentorship.

The Sherwood Shores of Grayson County Little Free Pantry is spearheading a campaign for young people to collect dry and canned goods for Texomaland Little Free Pantries on their spring break, and to be rewarded with a Lake Texoma adventure in return for their service.

Who Do We Need?

  • Young people in communities with Little Free Pantries
  • People who own Lake Texoma tourism businesses
  • Neighborhood organizers: For the safety of the young people, there needs to be two well-trusted adults to accompany the children on their rewarding adventures
  • Storage space for surplus in the Little Free Pantry neighborhood in case this campaign is too successful

What is the Little Free Pantry Movement?

The mini pantry movement activates neighbor engagement with food insecurity. The mini pantry movement is a grassroots, crowd-sourced solution to immediate and local need. Whether a need for food or a need to give, mini pantries help feed neighbors, and nourish neighborhoods. The Little Free Pantries offer dry and canned goods to neighborhoods in small quantities.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 19)

GOOD. Water stained; 75 degrees; 3.56 feet above pool. Striper fishing is great on live bait anchoring on humps in 20-30 feet of water and drifting flats in 15-25 feet of water. Topwaters are working early in the backs of creeks and along river channels. Catfish are good on cut shad and prepared baits. Channels are on the rocks and shallow flats in 10-20 feet of water. Blue catfish are on deep humps in 40-50 feet of water. Bass are slow on shallow crankbaits and top waters early along the banks. Look for bass in the shade during the day near docks in 8-15 feet of water. Shad fry are everywhere so downsize baits to catch numbers. Crappie are slow on jigs and minnows near docks and on brush piles using electronics to spot active fish in 10-18 feet of water. Report by Jacob Orr, Guaranteed Guide Service Lake Texoma. Water level continues to be high. Smaller striped bass are surfacing feeding on shad hitting topwaters and swimbaits. Slab bite is starting to turn on producing better quality fish in big schools in deep water. The slab bite will only improve. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors.
