Littlehampton Community Fridge Van Hire!

Fare Divide By Fare Divide

We need to hire a refrigerated van while getting funding for our own van to increase the amount of food saved from landfill and make it available to the local community.

This project was funded on 03 Mar 2020!

Littlehampton Community Fridge has saved 3.5 tonnes of food from landfill in the first 3 months, which has then been available to anyone to come and take items from our Community Fridge located in Littlehampton Library. We are now looking to expand our operation by being able to collect additional excess food and store and transport the food safely from our donors to the fridge. We are looking to hire a van for a period of time whilst we apply for funding for our own van.

What we'll deliver:

  • Save at least 1 tonne more excess food a month from going to landfill

Why it's a great idea:

Free, good food for the community. Helps businesses become zero waste. Better for the environment that good food is not wasted.

Steps to get it done:

  • Hire a refrigerated van
  • Work with excess food producers to collect more excess food
