The Community Fridge is a project led by volunteers and exists to save food from being wasted. 


Based at Wood Avenue library in Folkestone, the fridge is open 5 days a week and anyone can come and help themselves. All they ask is that you spread the word and consider your fellow fridge users when visiting them.
