Our Free Fridge and Pantry provides 24/7 access to perishable and nonperishable food items for anyone experiencing food insecurity.
how does it work?
Located in our Upper Garden, anyone can leave food donations or take food at anytime, as long as they follow the Fridge & Pantry Guidelines.
The fridge is outfitted with safety locks, wireless thermometers that notify our team's cell phones if the temperatures in the fridge start to warm, and a camera for extra safety. Visitors can now access a guest Wifi hotspot in the Upper Garden. Our volunteer Free Fridge Heroes monitor the fridge and help the project run smoothly, cleanly, and safely.
Everything donated must be sealed and labeled. Any community member is welcome to stop by the fridge and pantry at any time and leave items they wish to donate!
