What is freedge?

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

GIVE

Your garden is full of fruits and veggies and you don’t know what to do with all that produce? … OR Leaving for the weekend with a full fridge? … OR Wanna help a friend in need?

TAKE

Feeling Hungry? Check the freedge… OR Planning a grocery run? Maybe the ingredient you need is there waiting for you.

SHARE

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

Start a Freedge!

Help us spread community fridges!
