Community Fridges in Cambridge
Currently there are four Community Fridges in Cambridge and they complement what is already happening elsewhere. It is an initiative that is supported by Cambridge City Council through the work with the Food Poverty Alliance and Cambridge Sustainable Food (CSF). These organisations are providing guidance and support for our proposed local Fridge.
Local Fridges work on a micro-level to react to needs of those in need of food. They work within food safety guidelines. The Fridge decides opening hours and if it will just distribute food or allow for food collection. It is not means tested and people will self-identify their own needs.
Getting Food Donations
Some will come through CSF and FoodShare which distributes supermarket and business donated food that has reached the sell by date, but not the use by date. Other sources can be individual donations, local shops, local groups and allotments.
