Community fridges - the ‘little free library’ for food

Call them community fridges, free food fridges or ‘freedges,’ refrigerators set up in community locations for people to share food are gaining traction across the U.S. in states such as NY, CA, TN, FL, LA, and TX. This is due, in part, to the pandemic but the refrigerators were flourishing prior to the pandemic. Community refrigerators began overseas and in 2017 they were supported by a U.K. foundation, Hubbub Foundation in the U.K., Canada, Australia, India, Germany and Israel.
