New ‘community fridge’ offering free fresh food opening in Bankside – Southwark News
A Bankside charity is opening a new ‘community fridge’ that provides free fresh food for anyone who wants it.
The Bridge, a women’s charity on Southwark Bridge Road, will be opening up the fridge to the public on July 20 from midday. Anyone can use the fridge, despite the Bridge being a charity that supports women. No registration is needed, although people can sign up to get updates on what will be in the fridge.

Food in the fridge will be supplied by the London food charity the Felix Project, as well as local businesses and other charities. Any local people or businesses who would like to be involved can contact the Bridge.
Staff at the Bridge decorated the fridge with magnets that show their frustrations at how difficult it can be for everyone to get good-quality food at affordable prices. The charity is also putting on a coffee morning for women on July 27 at 10am, with optional fridge magnet making. All materials are provided and the event is free and open to all women.
