Community Fridge News

Updated: Mar 23

The Ash Vale Community Fridge and Ash Villages Food Parcels Project team have some great news this week! They will be collecting short dated items from our 2 local Co-ops in Ash and Ash Vale on Saturdays going forward, saving even more good food from being wasted. (This is in addition to the donations we already receive regularly on Tuesdays and Thursdays.) What a great way to stop food waste and save the planet!

If you’d like to visit the Community Fridge and pick up some free food to save it from being wasted, it’s open 24/7 in our Community Shed here at The Chapel, Wharf Rd, GU12 5AY. First come first served. (Remember to update the red folder so we can track how much food we are saving from the bin!)

Sharing is caring - please only take what you can definitely use, so everyone can share in the available items and nothing is wasted.

Got more than you need? You can also donate your own surplus food, as long as it is sealed in its original packaging, and in date (or fresh from the allotment!) Please update the red folder with date & weight when you donate, so we can track how much food is being donated and saved from the bin. Our fridge funders at Hubbub love to know the impact this project is having!

Did you know? From June 2023-December 2023 the Community Fridge alone saved over 1000kg food from being wasted! Thank you to everyone who uses the fridge, and to all our amazing donors and volunteers.
