What is freedge?

Freedge is a sharing mechanism aiming to reduce food waste and build a stronger community. We promote the installation of community fridges (public refrigerators) that are used to share food and ideas at the neighborhood level.

GIVE

You are leaving for the weekend with a full fridge and have some food that needs to be eaten fresh… OR You just had a dinner party at home and have too many leftovers… OR There are many fruit trees in your garden and you don’t know what to do with all that produce. Don’t want your food to go to waste? Bring it to the freedge!

TAKE

Planning a grocery run? Have a look in the freedge before you go. You might find the ingredient you need is there waiting for you… OR Your fridge is empty and you are hungry, but feeling lazy to go grocery shopping. Maybe the freedge has just what you need…

SHARE

Get involved in your community! Freedge is a free sharing space used not only for food, but also stories, art and ideas!
