The Community Fridge Network (funded opportunity for community groups)

Published: 22 August 2017

UK families waste an average of £470 a year by throwing away food and drink which could have been eaten, and the food sector wastes a further £3 billion. Community Fridges offer an easy way for people and businesses to share this food as it nears its 'sell by' date instead of throwing it out.

The Community Fridge network will connect fridges across the UK, so get in touch at Waste_Strategy@buckscc.gov.uk if you'd be interested in setting up your own.

Hubbub, the environmental charity and the BCC Waste team would be in full support, and the Rothschild Foundation would be offering funding for two new locations in Bucks!
