Community fridges are helping tackle Britain’s growing food waste crisis.
Could a scheme that allows residents to donate their surplus produce help tackle Britain’s £13bn food waste problem?
Towns across the UK are battling food waste by setting up community fridges that give everyone access, regardless of their financial situation.
With the average UK family wasting £470 worth of food a year, the initiative, launched by environmental charity Hubbub, allows locals to donate their surplus fruit, vegetables and perishables to the referral-free food bank.
The Hubbub network currently supports 32 fridge projects across England, Scotland and Ireland with creative partner Tessa Tricks taking inspiration from across Europe.
