Exeter Community Fridge

We rescue surplus food from supermarkets across the city and give it away to all via a publicly accessible fridge in Exeter Library in order to reduce food waste.
As above. We need volunteers to pick up surplus food from designated businesses and drop it off at the Community Fridge. Quantities of food can vary but we will aim to match individual volunteers to particular pick-ups. Pick-ups are usually in the morning and the fridge is open during library opening hours. We are primarily a sustainability initiative.

10 GoodGymers have supported Exeter Community Fridge with 88 tasks.

Another Saturday and another batch of bananas saved from the bin (18kg of bananas to be precise) ! Plus some other bakery and veg from local supermarkets was shared with the community fridge in the library. It's surprising how quickly the food gets snapped up! Thanks to @Craig for sharing the banana load.
