By the community, for the community
We are a mutual aid collective with food justice and community liberation at the center of our work.
Worcester Community Fridges was started amidst the Covid 19 pandemic in January 2021. We were inspired to start the community fridges after noticing that the pandemic made food pantries less accessible to working folks with their limited days and hours.
