Brixton’s People’s Fridge helps eliminate food waste and fight food poverty

Brixton has launched London’s first People’s Fridge, a crowdfunded scheme that tackles the problem of food waste and at the same time contributes to alleviating food poverty.

The idea is that registered businesses, such as supermarkets and food traders, can leave cooked meals in a designated fridge, and people passing are free to help themselves. Individuals can leave food, too, if it’s fresh and unopened.The People’s Fridge is situated at Pop Brixton, a community initiative for local startups in the heart of Brixton, run in partnership with Lambeth Council. The retailers at Pop Brixton will help stock and clean the fridge every day.

The Brixton People’s Fridge is one of hundreds of similar projects elsewhere in the UK and in countries including Spain, Germany and India.
