Brixton People’s Fridge. Heard of it?

If not, it’s a fridge called Freddie. Well, it’s a fridge in the sense that it looks like one, acts like one and it has food in it. After that, everything about it is different to the ones most of us are used to.

For a start, this fridge has 1700 followers on Twitter.

This one is also not hidden away in someone’s kitchen (it’s set up in open air at the back of POP Brixton), so that anyone, from individuals to restaurants and retailers, can donate fresh surplus food (anything except raw meat, raw fish, opened milk) to it. To really simplify things, the idea is that a little bit less food gets wasted and people who are really in need of that food can take it.
