"Becoming involved with the Greenpoint fridge has definitely been the highlight of my summer! I saw community fridges popping up all around the city and was SO inspired when I saw there was one being placed just around the corner from my apartment. I love being an active part of my community, getting to know my neighbors, participating in clean ups and gardening days, and being a part of something that is so helpful to the city. The fridge is a great intersection of both neighbors helping neighbors, preventing food waste, and supporting the community. It’s important to note, the fridge is not charity, it’s mutual aid for our neighborhood! Especially when covid is impacting so many people, it’s an important way to fight food insecurity. My “fridge care day” is Friday, and I love stopping by on my way to the studio, giving it a wipe down, seeing how the food inside changes daily, organizing, and sharing that info with the rest of the volunteers! To become involved with the Greenpoint Fridge you can sign up here! And to see a spreadsheet of all the documented free fridges around the world check out this epic google doc! And be sure to follow the fridge on Insta! (I help manage the account!)"
