Leicestershire Community Fridges
March 9, 2022
Have you heard of the Community Fridge?
Well, there’s 250 across the UK and Leicestershire has 4– how lucky are we!
Community Fridges enable communities and businesses to come together to rescue food from going to landfill, just because it’s close to its best before date.
Our local Community Fridges are run by a team of Children and Family Wellbeing Service volunteers, in conjunction with a charity called Hubbub. We are proud to work with some fantastic partners who play a vital role in supporting this sharing of food. M&S, Coop, Aldi, Lidl, Milner’s Bakery, Greggs, Asda, Waitrose, Sainsburys and Greets Fruit and Veg to name a few.
Our volunteers travel across Leicestershire collecting donations of food and then take it to their nearest Community Fridge for our visitors to take what they need. And guess what, we’ve stopped approx. 50,000kg of food going to landfill since June 2021!!!
The fridges are open to EVERYONE and its totally FREE – just bring a carrier bag
Tinned and dried food donations from members of the public accepted.
