The Burnaby Community Fridge is ready for you!
Based on similar programs in Canada and around the world, the Burnaby Community Fridge Program will provide something many people in our community need most – food.
The Community Fridge Program provides this in a safe, low barrier and nonjudgmental way. It provides a place for people in our neighbourhoods to give and take, to reduce waste and feed their children better. It builds and enhances our food security in Burnaby.
Go visit one of the fridge locations listed below, and feel free to take something or leave something!
Follow the fridge at @burnabyfridge on Instagram, and stay tuned for more details!
