The Community Fridge is a welcoming, non-judgmental space that will be populated with free, surplus food from local businesses and residents that would otherwise go to waste. It also presents a valuable opportunity for us all to come together, share good food and create new friendships with our neighbours. Come along to give, take and share food with the neighbourhood.
Thursday and Friday 10am-3 pm
Donating food: Whether you’re a local business, market trader, run a breakfast club or have leftover food in your own pantry, we welcome food donations from everyone!
A few things to keep in mind:
- Check that any donated food is good for at least another 24 hours
- Ensure it’s within its use by date
- We can’t accept cooked food unless you are a registered food business with a hygiene rating of 4 or above
- Any chilled items need to be transported to us promptly in a cooler bag, otherwise we may not be able to accept it
There are certain items we can’t accept due to food safety purposes, so please read the following donation criteria before dropping food off:
Volunteering: We’re always keen to create new surplus relationships with people in the community. If you know of anyone who’d benefit from donating leftover food to our fridge, we want to hear! You can also volunteer your time to collect surplus, promote the fridge, or suggest activities you’d like to run alongside the fridge (e.g. social meetups, recipe sharing).
Financial donations: Make your donation to the WLR here.
Walworth Living Room is a new space for our community open to everyone.
