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.

DOE

Wanna help a friend in need? Your garden is full of fruits and veggies and you wanna share some? Leaving for the weekend with a full fridge?

PEGUE

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

COMPARTILHE

Get involved in your community and start a conversation about food insecurity, food waste and the food system. Freedge is a free sharing space used not only for food, but also stories, art and ideas!
