Frequently Asked Questions
The goal is to provide an efficient model to fill the gaps in between other food resources (SNAP, WIC, etc.). This event setting will allow for ease of access to those in need with less long term commitment from a community center. Partners and community centers should be those that have access to underserved target populations.
We hope to transition slowly towards Giving Fridges as we survey needs throughout communities.
A Giving Fridge is an open-community fridge that provides refugee families and people in need with food and water at any time of the day. We partner with local community centers or restaurants to place an enclosed and insulated fridge outside or inside of their premises.
We all do. In order to keep the fridge stocked at all times, community members should work together to fill it with water, pre-packaged goods, and non-perishable foods.
Our staff has dedicated hours of their time to make this possible but we feel very strongly about our cause and hope that others feel the same way. Please take time to thank our staff through email.
