LAKE WORTH BEACH, Fla. — You may have heard of the Little Free Library, a series of neighborhood book exchange kiosks. But what about the Little Free Pantry?

"I walked around during COVID and said there needs to be an answer [to feeding the hungry] there needs to be a better way than sitting in hotlines carrying boxes taking buses. So I took a little lesson from the little free library and said let's make a little free pantry and TLC little free pantry was born and we've been working ever since," said Summer Faerman who is the director of TLC at B'nai Torah.

Now there are over 60 pantries scattered from Broward County to Delaware.

"No questions asked no hours, no forms, if you have you give and if you need to take," said Faerman.

The pantry at Sunlight Community Church in Lake Worth Beach got started by Brandon Martinez a senior at Suncoast High School as a part of his community service hours project. endowed the entire project is run by TLC of B'Nai Torah in Boca Raton.
