The average UK family wastes £470 a year by throwing away food and drink which could have been eaten, and a further £3 billion is wasted by food sectors. Despite growing awareness of food waste, there are few easy ways for people or businesses to get food near it's 'sell by' date to others, until now... introducing The Community Fridge Network!

Community Fridges are communal places where surplus food is shared with the local community, by local businesses and individuals. So far they've helped thousands connect to their communities, access nutritious food, save money and reduce waste.

Since the Swadlincote Community Fridge trial, the demand for Communities Fridges have been growing. That's why we've launched The Community Fridge Network, to create a flourishing community of safe and effectively run fridges that re-distribute surplus food across the UK.
