The Botley community fridge is a (small) fridge and associated shelving into which anyone can put food, and from which anyone can take food.
Church of St. Peter & St. Paul, 81 West Way, Botley OX2 9LS
Priority for people in need Mon and Sat 9-10am
Individuals can put in fruit, vegetables, bread/pastry and non-perishables. Registered food businesses can also put in cooked food. No raw meat/fish, eggs, cooked rice, or food past its ‘use by’ date please! Good quality food past its ‘best before’ date is fine.
- If you’d like to take food
- If you know someone who could use food
- If you’d like to donate food as an individual
- If you’d like to donate food as a registered food business
- If you may want to volunteer (see below)
Thank you to the Sprout, the Coop and Rowse for funding; and to Tesco and Sainsbury’s for providing food. The Botley community fridge is managed by a wonderful group of volunteers who check it on a daily basis.
