We are launching the Halstead Community Fridge on 13 August 2018, to enable residents and businesses to share surplus food and for anyone to help themselves to quality food that would otherwise be wasted. We accept anything except uncooked meat or fish. The stats around food waste in the UK are shocking. The average household throws away £470 worth of food every year. Every day we throw away 220,000 loaves of bread, 5 million potatoes, and 660,000 eggs. Most of the food waste in the UK is avoidable and the food could have been eaten had it been better managed. The fridge is a simple solution to enable anyone in Halstead to share some of this surplus food – cutting costs and emissions. Let’s utilise our food and fight against waste Donate to the fridge, whether it’s the end of your business day, you bake daily, it’s past its sell by date but still within use by.
