Marlborough Community Fridge is an exciting partnership project between Marlborough Town Council and Transition Marlborough.
The Community Fridge is in the Community Room at Cooper’s Corner in the George Lane carpark, and open on Thursdays and Saturdays 10 am – 2 pm.
A Community Fridge is a place to redistribute fresh, good quality, in-date food that might otherwise not get eaten. Some supplies come from local food retailers and we welcome unopened, in-date foods and home-grown produce from households too. You can find out more from Hubbub at www.hubbub.org.uk/the-community-fridge
It is free to access, there are no criteria that have to be met to use it so it is open to everyone in the local community. Our plans include a PYO herb garden to complement the fridge and we’re composting any actual food waste in a Green Johanna composter on site
The fridge itself was generously donated and set of up costs have been met through fund-raising, including a £500 seed-funding grant from the Transition Network and match funding from the Area Board.
A group of willing volunteers have stepped up to help run the fridge and are engaging with local food retailers to build the working relationships needed to supply the fridge with a regular and varied supply of fresh and ambient foods.
If anyone would like to volunteer to help the fridge stay open for longer, please email Clare Harris, Assistant Town Clerk on firstname.lastname@example.org.
