. food waste – a simple response
As well as helping us to tackle the issue of food waste the community fridge allows us to offer this surplus free to anyone in the community.
As well as our own surplus, anyone in the community can drop off good but unwanted food. We check it is safe to eat, and that packaging is undamaged, re-labeling as appropriate, and then store it in the Fridge/Freezer so that anyone can help themselves to it.
This achieves a dual aim of reducing food waste, redistributing unwanted food to others who can make use of it, whilst also allowing people to access items that otherwise would be outside of their budget.
In the UK
people live in food poverty
whilst the average family wastes
