What We Do

We collect fresh, nutritious perfectly edible food that can no longer be sold or is no longer needed

We safely store produce in one of our four fridges and four freezers. Food is logged into the fridges and weighed back out so that we can track weight.

We redistribute this fresh produce to all that want to join the fight against food waste

How Does It Work?

If you’d like to use the Forest Row Community Fridge it’s really simple. Turn up during our opening hours, choose the food that you will use, one of our volunteers will weigh out your produce and you then take home to enjoy! For further information please see our frequently asked questions.
