What is a Community Fridge?
A community fridge is a way of reducing the amount of good food that is thrown away.
Did you know that the average family wastes £470 a year throwing away food and drink and £3 billion is wasted by other food sectors, yet 4 million people are living in poverty?!
We receive food from Sainsburys North Cheam (both the main superstore and the Sainsburys Local) and Getir Tolworth. The food can vary from non-perishable items to chilled foods and fruit and vegetables, but we don't know what we will be getting each day.
Using the community fridge is a great way of trying new foods for your family, without the expense of buying it, only to discover it isn't liked or appreciated!
The fridge will be open Monday-Friday 11.00am-3.00pm, with collections available each day from around 11.45am.
To check if we have had a collection please follow our Facebook page (Ewell Family Centre) or call the centre office 020 8337 7310 Option 1.
We will advertise the food we have collected each day on our Facebook page (link below)> Please follow us there for daily updates on the food we have available. Some examples of our recent collections are below (all advertised on Facebook on the day of collection).
We will be operating the fridge under COVID-19 measures to keep us ALL safe.
We provide a service to support families, therefore this fridge is for the benefit of families with children under the age of 18 years.
