The Artist Pantry

In 2024, The Artist Pantry was established to strengthen our commitment to supporting creatives. By stocking our shelves with non-perishable and ready-made foods, we strive to remove obstacles related to food access, ensuring that the creatives we serve have access to nourishment.

The Artist Pantry is located within The Medium’s ‘Gathering Room,’ and is available to The Medium’s creative community with no questions asked.
