F&W Game Changers: Fridges for All (Food & Wine)

New-to-me, from Food & Wine: F&W Game Changers: Fridges for All. “Unlike food pantries or other forms of food assistance, community fridges don’t attract large crowds or require interpersonal contact, making them particularly COVID-friendly. Masked volunteers fill the fridges with groceries purchased thanks to donations, often through Venmo or Cash App, and community members can add food to the fridges, too. While the concept has existed for years, the coronavirus pandemic has spurred a surge in community-generated support; fridges have become vital sources of fresh, easily accessible foods in Los Angeles, New York, Oakland, Chicago, and more cities around the country.”
