Wallingford Community Fridge was opened in December 2018. It is estimated that the average UK family wastes £810 a year by throwing away food and drink which could have been eaten by others. In addition up to £3 billion is wasted by food sectors. This then is our way of helping people share their surplus as well as facilitating businesses to give away food that is near its 'sell by' date.
We are constantly looking for people to bring (and take) fresh food, particularly fruit and vegetables (sorry, no meat or fish), as well as volunteers able and willing to sustain the service.
The Fridge can be found at The Fountain Bookshop, 21b St Mary’s Street and will be open Tuesday – Friday 9.30 am – 4.30 pm and Saturday 9.30 am – 1.00 pm.
