In Association with Hubbub we have set up a “Community Fridge”. What is a community fridge you ask?
It is a fridge that is happy to receive good quality food that would have been thrown away. All food going into the fridge is quality checked. Anyone can donate, a business can donate. And more importantly anyone can help themselves to food in the fridge.
The fridge is accessible Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 9.30am to 3.30pm
Since Nov 2019, the Community Fridge Network (CFN) redistributed the equivalent of over 9 million meals* (over 4,000 tonnes of food surplus) to over 250,000 visitors.
With each fridge sharing an average of 2.4 tonnes of food per month, the collective impact of the Community Fridge Network is huge. What’s more important, are the stories that we hear from communities. The fridges bring people together, address social isolation and provide people with the opportunity to access healthy food, try something new and save money.
In a nutshell, a fridge is often so much more than a fridge. As well as introducing you to new people and foods, community fridges host all kinds of activities such as cooking workshops, food growing, clothes swaps… you name it.
Please bring your donations to Open door on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday.
