Community fridges - breaking news


Following the lead of Bournemouth, Christchuch and Poole Cllr Millie Earl, North Dorset Liberal Democrats has decided to take the initiative to set up Community Fridges in North Dorset.  The food in Community Fridges are available for anyone to collect free, preventing food waste and helping people to stretch their household budgets.  There are now four Community Fridges operating successfully in BCP and we will build on their experience.

Our first step is to find venues and to raise funds.  We have found our first venue, The Emporium in Sturminster Newton and we have set up a crowd funding page with JustGiving.

When the fridges are in operation, we will need volunteers to collect food from supermarkets and elsewhere and do the daily checks required by Environmental Health regulations.

If you would like to help, contact Ros Eveleigh or any of the NDLD officers.
