WEINER, AR (KAIT) -

A Region 8 native is set to appear on a new ABC talk show Monday.

Jessica McClard, a native of Weiner, recently traveled to New York to record a segment on the new ABC talk show Harry, hosted by Harry Connick Jr.

She was asked to be on the show after her work creating The Little Free Pantry.

The Little Free Pantry is a grassroots project that helps combat food insecurities.

Her first pantry was placed in Fayetteville, and towns and cities across the country have followed suit, including her childhood home of Weiner.

The pantries are designed like Free Little Libraries to offer people essentials 24-hours a day. 

According to McClard’s mother, Patricia Hesse of Weiner, her spot on Harry will premiere Monday, Sept. 26, 2016, at 2 p.m. on KAIT.

Hesse said it’s worth the watch and you can’t believe what happens at the end.
