Community fridges are donation-based, publicly-accessible refrigerators. This allows anyone to take what they need or leave food for those in need.
Here are ways that you can help:
The community fridge is accepting perishable and non-perishable food items as well as toiletries. Prepared food is not accepted.
Donations can be dropped off at Exchange to Change Resale shop.
A GoFundMe has been organized in order to raise funds to purchase more fridges that will be set up throughout the city. Click here to donate.
The community fridge is in need of volunteers to help stock and monitor the fridge. Click here to sign up for a shift.
