About Community Fridge Network
The average UK family wastes £810 a year by throwing away edible food and drink, and £3 billion is wasted by the food industry. Community fridges make fresh food available to everyone in the community for free, helping people connect to their communities, access nutritious food, save money and reduce waste.
Hubbub’s Community Fridge Network joins up all of the community fridge projects around the UK, providing information and resources, and connecting users and organisers. Barley’s media work has helped the message reach millions of people and inspire hundreds of enquires about setting up a community fridge.
