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.

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.

Riki would be happy to talk to you if you are thinking of setting up your own community fridge:

Thank you so much for your lovely email and helpful attachments…  I’m delighted (and excited) to confirm that the members agreed to run with the community fridge project…  Speaking to yourself and Clare made all the difference and it certainly helped me to be able to share your advice and experiences…  thanks again for your help.  Ali.
