The Fridge is incredibly grateful for individual donations of groceries and yet the need continues to grow. Therefore we need your help as we build sustainable partnerships with farmers markets, community gardens, pantries and other community organizations in our efforts to rescue and redirect foods. These sources will help to supply the Fridge with fresh, locally-sourced produce and prepared meals.

All donated funds go toward:

- Purchasing fresh produce from surrounding farms and local wholesalers who support the community fridge movement
- Transportation and logistics of both donated and rescued foods.
