The Wimborne Community Fridge is now open & is situated at the Allendale Centre in their environmental & recycling area. This Fridge is for EVERYONE. If you pass the fridge & see something you would use please feel free to take it as we do not want to have to throw any of this food away. Volunteers will stock the fridge with surplus food from our local supermarkets but we would also ask that if you ever have any unwanted fresh food that you think of putting it in to the Community Fridge. Please spread the word, if you are going on holiday & have unwanted fresh food, if you know anyone with an allotment that has an excess of food or if you see a buy one get one free offer & you do not need the free one please think of the fridge & reduce food waste whilst helping others within the Community.
There is a separate racking unit next to the fridge for the Bread & Bakery items that we will be receiving. Please bring your own bags (especially for the bakery items)
