Who is The Charlie Fund Little Free Pantry for?
How does Little Free Pantry differ from other food pantries?
How do you start a Charlie Fund Little Free Pantry?
Safety first! The location should be safe, away from high traffic/high crime areas.
Second, the location should be accessible by car with little impact on local traffic but clear of easements and aprons between the sidewalk and the street.
Third, determine whether private property or public property best suits your vision. Then, identify more than one location; your first choice may fall through. If a potential location is residential, determine whether neighbors will be supportive. Will increased traffic be viewed as a nuisance or an invasion of privacy?
Fourth, follow appropriate channels to obtain permission and/or a permit
Finally, if your Summers are hot, position North or East-facing.

How You Can Help:
Filling a Pantry is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
1. Purchase non-perishables from the grocery store on your next trip or go through your pantry and find any unopened foods that you want to donate
2. Stop by one of the pantries – any day, any time
3. Pull into a safe parking spot and fill the pantry.
If the pantry is already full or if it’s easier for you, food may be dropped off at B’nai Torah Congregation.
You can also order non-perishables (click here for a full list) and have them delivered to B’nai Torah attention Summer Faerman.
