Community Fridge

Community fridges are a  tried and tested way of stopping good food ending up in the bin and promoting a spirit of sharing and mutual support within a community.

They work on an honesty basis and are housed in public, accessible places, making surplus food freely available to members of the public. Surplus perishable food is donated by local businesses or members of the public and then made available for all.

Unlike food banks, the fridges are available for anyone to use and provide access to healthy food, share recipes and spark ideas around wider social and environmental action.


Our community fridge is open whenever we are. Currently we get a weekly delivery from Fareshare, and we are always open to partnerships with local businesses, and ever grateful for donations of any size from members of the public.
