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

Leaving for the weekend with a full fridge? … OR Too many leftovers after a dinner party? … OR Your garden is full of fruits and veggies and you don’t know what to do with all that produce?

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!
